Spirit Tea: Ambrosia Breakfast (Black Tea)
40g loose leaf tea.
Tasting Notes: plush, full-bodied and sweet with notes of hawthorn berries, baked peach, and mead
Ambrosia breakfast is testament to the interconnection of three kingdoms: insect, plant and animal. Tender tea shoots are bitten by jassids, which cause the plant to release an alluring scent, attracting predators of the insect. Producer Mr. Lu’s task is to court the jassids to his garden—a delicate balance—and pluck the bitten shoots.
