Tea-Tasting is Life-Tasting

I love creates my own space from busy life. Sometimes, enjoy some music and release press from touchable rhythm. Sometimes, watch a new arrival movie in theater. Sometimes, talk with my close friends. Why not drink a cup of tea? Maybe “drink” is not exactly to express the emotion. So I prefer use the word “taste”.   

I am addicted in Puer. Love the unpredictable scent and color that take an infinite imaging. Take a cup of tea and match a comfortable music, you could avoid noisy world and enjoy a space that just for you. Take a rest when you tired and stop your step. See what happened around you and don’t hesitate to take a cup of tea.


Enjoy Serving Tea

I used to study serving tea at home when I was in China. Yeah, I miss that wonderful time. My “master” is mom. She familiar with serving tea to guests. There is a bundle of special tool to make a cup of Puer. I cannot figure out exactly English words about every applied tool. Fortunately, I found a nice video in YouTube that remind me each specific movement when serving Puer. Nice video!

Where, What, When

Where is original Place of Puer Tea. See this Chinese map? Yellow area is the beautiful Puer City of Yunnan Province.

“For thousands of years, there was an ancient road treaded by human feet and horse hoofs in the mountains of Southwest China, bridging the Chinese hinterland and the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Along the unpaved and often rugged road, tea, salt and sugar flowed into Tibet, while horses, cows, furs, musk and other local products came out. The ancient commercial passage, dubbed the “Ancient Tea-Horse Road“.”


Can I speak out every story about Puer Tea? Of course not. I am not historian, not archeologist, also not expert. But I have a special feeling and emotion when I type in every word in here. I create the name for this page which is “Tea Scenario”. Scenario could involve a lot.  Every pics and every thoughts could match a song and a specific sphere. Do you agree? I cannot agree more.

I am a Piscis Chinese girl who lives in Chicago and study in Loyola. I enjoy experiencing different culture and expecting unknown world. The symbol for Pisces is two fishes swimming in opposite directions(See the image on the left). Its indicates that I am sensitive and unconsciously so I may absorb the moods and thoughts of the people around me.

Puer tea is one of the famous export products in my hometown – Puer City in China. Mom and I start to taste and enjoy Puer tea for a long time. Mom is a big fan of Puer Tea not only because tea itself, but also involve tea culture and tea mood. I have different feeling and mood when I taste different sorts of Puer tea. Each tea sort brings you its special looking, scent, and taste.  I enjoy sharing this experience with you and you may fall in love with Puer Tea!
