The playful nature of the hand-rolled black and green spheres introduces this friendly composition in a manner both wholesome and wise. The golden tint, traditional for black teas, marches beyond the visual plane into the realm of the tongue. The tea tastes golden, featuring a royal array of cedar in flame, freshly crafted twilight truffles, wind over wheat fields, and an aura of grandeur.
The texture is remarkable, swimming about with the casual delight of a porpoise and fading afterward with such sloth that it inspires deeply personal pangs of sorrow for its absence. Akin to dream, it comes and goes with that same elusive and exotic purpose only to leave one disappointed in the world it leaves behind. It is a kind stranger and an amber kiss.
I am at peace. The warmth expands as a balloon from deep, eventually consuming the host, sleeping within. I am, in its wake, in a state of contentedness that borders on hazardous. I am grateful and I am humbled.
The experience persists through another submergence, retaining all of the glory of its initial brewing. In earlier days, this would be reserved for royalty. It is simply magnificent.
