I am new to drinking tea, particularly living tea - tea leaves acquired from seed propogated old-growth trees. In a short span of time, these teas have had a profound effect on me. I will share my experience of each of the living teas I have had a chance to try and spend a little time with.
My meager knowledge of tea preparation and access to this type of tea comes from brief encounters with Wu De of Tea Sage Hut/Global Tea Hut and Colin Hudon of Living Tea, for which I am extremly grateful.
By "Tea Qi" below, I mean to say how the tea moves and effects me.
