Let the feasting begin

This morning I started off with a flowery Li Shan oolong tea alongside some decorative touches on my cha xi. The mood is infectious and soon there will be meat, sweets and lots of booze. As a healthier alternative, you could consider brewing a pot of your favourite raw pu'er that pairs nicely with those decadent foods. Raw pu'er infusions are generally quite intense on a floral note which seems to be very much in line with our festive theme ;-)

  1. I had some old raw puerh after some 'decadent foods' (salmon with wasabi mixed in whip cream and goose liver with organic Zind Humbold Gewurztraminer white wine). I wouldn't say it's a good pairing, but it does balance well the rich aspects of these foods with the tea. It restores harmony in the stomach and in the mind.
    So, let me wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a joyful New Year 2014!
