Drinking tea engages all your senses. One becomes aware of the opening, taste and a lingering aroma.

The opening is the tea's way of introducing itself and inviting you to more. It starts when you see the different parts of the loose leaf tea, appreciating the textures and colours and the engagement of your smell with the releasing of the first flavours as you pour water over the tea leaves.

Once you have taken a sip, the taste allows you to experience the flavour.

And then, when you swallow, you are left with a lingering aroma, that might take you to a happy memory, bring calm, rejuvinate, encourage or simply urge you to take the next sip.
