Sticky Rice Sheng Puerh
The following information was taken from The London Teaclub subscription insert.
An ecological and naturally grown tea (organic without certification) Harvested in spring 2018 by Li Shu Lin and family in the Nannou Mountain, Yunnan, China.
Tea leaves are handpicked from Mr Mi’s ecological titres,, then sun dried and fired to make sheng puerh. The tea leaves are the blended by hand with a. Local herb called nul mi xiang, our ‘sticky rice fragrance’, in the style of the local Dai Minority in Yunnan. The resulting blend has the intense mineral and herbaceous flavours of sheng puerh accented with the sweetness of sticky rice.
The tea is produced in small batches and grown on trees that are less than 20 years old that Mr. Li planted himself. The tea trees have never had any added manures, pesticides or soil additives of any kind, and thrive completely on their own in their own environment.
The tea meditation is a mindfulness practice that transitions us from the quiet stillness of the meditations, bringing our senses back into the room we are in before we move into a gentle discussion around the practices. As I prepare and serve you the tea you are invited to connect to the present moment, to the sights, sounds, smells and taste of the tea.
This tea will be offered at the weekly meditation ateliers every Friday 10:30-11:30am and at the Afternoon Retreat is Tuesday 18th February 1-3:30pm.
