I’ve been working with tea since 2014 in various ways, mostly by hosting tea events and writing label descriptions for TeeMaa tea house in Helsinki. In 2018, I started getting more serious about tea’s meditative and ceremonial aspects, and I made such tea sessions part of my everyday life, and I’ve loved it.

My preferences in tea are wide and varied, from old tree pu’er to matcha to masala chai (or boiled heicha!) with cream and sugar. I do have a strong preference for clean/wild tea, and I’m glad that it’s becoming easier to find through shops like this one. Tertti from Liquid Metta kindly sent me some of his teas so that I could write a few words about them. I hope that my added perspective helps you choose teas that are relevant to you!
