Drinking good tea, listening good music,
A few times in life, what a fortune.
Yesterday I was fortunate enough
to experience both with several nice friends
茶人Yang Wang 讓我們品嘗到四種不同的茶
If I remember right, Yang demonstrated 4 kinds of tea for us to taste
2011 Black Dragon Tea (Wulong tea)
Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy)
31 years old Puer Tea
I need to learn how to taste Chinese tea,
used to drink tea bags
the first sip of the Wulong tea, I felt very smooth and tasty in my throat.
Yang likes to use musical feeling to describe tea
He said that 'tea' is a verb not a noun
because tea flavor is always changing in our mouth.
The most impressive one is the last one we taste,
the 31 years old puer, it gave me an impression of grandpa's old study room.
四面楚歌 十面埋伏 霸王別姬之故事
Good music is not easy to hear as well,
Guqin likes to have small audience
the energy is just about right
Glenn 吹了一首近代尺八曲- 流謫
Listening Glenn's shakuhachi - Exile, looking at the running script calligraphy on the wall by Puru,
I felt they float together very well.
It was a hot day, 90 degree F outside,
But inside, the silk and bamboo with tea really cool us down so well.
The yaji was ended at 7pm.
