Bamboogie is our high end wild arbor tea from the Jinggu area spring picked in 2015. Probably the most potent of our 2015 lineup, with delicious complexity and an edge of bitterness just like so many of the classic hits. We invite you to take your time and "really explore the studio space" with this one - do very fast infusions to get going, observe the aromas left in your cup, enjoy a lasting clean sweetness in your mouth long after the last sip. It draws from deep roots of 100+ year old trees growing in clean, high altitude air at "Bitter Bamboo Mountain."

Tea brewing is meant to be a joyful exploration. There are no hard and fast rules. Experiment with the quantity of tea that you use, and steeping times. Enjoy discovering what your preferences are. They may change day to day.
