Needless to say I did not sleep well, and tonight, though I wanted to indulge I was looking for something softer, safer, still a new experience but a mellowing one. I got lucky! I found, pinned to my cork-board just waiting to be tried, a little black foil pouch holding a sample of 'Evening Engagement,' a perfect match for tonight.
Imagine this. Organic everything. A Chinese white tea called Ba Mu Dan mixed with Rose petals and Chrysanthemum. Not a tea to be flash brewed in a gaiwan so I pulled out my infuser and watched the petals and the leaves dance. This is what I was in the mood for and what my body needed, after last nights Puerh sessions, and honestly, today's Puerh sessions. I needed a new companion. One I could make a large bowl of and enjoy while sitting across the table from my child playing a board game. One that would allow me to indulge my sense yet get some rest.
I found this a totally mellowing tea, I am now ready for bed, but first! First I shall brew up another 16 ounces of Evening Engagement and put it in a pitcher to enjoy tomorrow afternoon. This is a tea for any time of day your in the mood for a white tea with a floral touch. Regardless of the charming name, don't wait for evening to try this one out.
