During Fall 2015, I had a tea sipping experience that changed my life! I tasted 2 teas that were similarly unique. Sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? Well, allow me to explain…
I sipped tea derived from the same farm, possibly the same bush and produced by the same company. The only difference was that one tea was harvested in Autumn and the other in Spring. What a unique tea experience this was! Click play to see my honest review of Autumn 2015 and Spring 2015 Green Tea Pu'er from Misty Peak Teas and how their similarities are strikingly…well…different!
Although these teas are very different in scent and sip, Autumn 2015 and Spring 2015 Green Pu'er Teas by Misty Peak Teas are extremely similar if not identical in hue. Can you tell a difference in the hues? I certainly cannot!
AUTUMN During the season of Fall, leaves are falling from the trees and the grass is turning from bright green to brown. The woody-ness of the earth becomes ever more prevalent and all things become more grounded. The scent of Autumn 2015 Green Pu’er from Misty Peak Teas embodies these changes.
SPRING Flowers are a-bloom and the grass and herbs are full of chlorophyll as everything springs to life! Spring 2015 Green Pu’er from Misty Peak Teas certainly embraces the floral life growing around it and the excitement that the season of Spring brings.
AUTUMN Since Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year I am a bit biased when comparing the Autumn 2015 and Spring 2015 Green Pu’er from Misty Peak Teas. Autumn 2015 definitely speaks to my soul and allows me to taste, sip and enjoy over and over again the very season that I am in love with.
SPRING There’s no other season quite as exciting and busy as Spring. Birds are chirping, flowers are sprouting and sending busy bees their lovely scent. Everything is fresh and brand-new. When sipping Spring 2015 Green Pu’er, I was able to feel all of these events and taste the floral concoction growing around the tea.
AUTUMN I feel grounded and centered. Hopeful and wise. I feel like something new awaits me and I feel challenged to ameliorate anything that I do. This is how I feel in the season of Fall and this is exactly how I feel when sipping Autumn 2015 Green Pu’er. Amazing!
SPRING I feel hurried and excited. Edgy but happy. I feel like there’s plenty to do and I need to be up to it! This is exactly how I feel when the season of Spring arrives. I must admit, although I enjoyed the floral and fresh taste of Spring 2015 Green Pu’er by Misty Peak Teas, my normal countenance is quite calm and centered therefore, I felt as though I was battling my natural self when sipping Spring 2015.
Have you ever sipped a season? Explain.
