Choosing a tea
If you think of the different teas and your palate like tuning forks, you are seeking the best resonance between them. Beyond it being agreeable to pick a tea that you actually enjoy drinking, the reason we use taste as a great guide is that when you drink a tea with some awareness, it is possible to experience its effects on every level of your being BUT the physical (taste and smell) and the emotional (do you like it/ how does it make you feel) are the ones that give you the most easy access to your inner self. This is why as a first step we encourage people to try ALL the teas before choosing the one(s) they want to drink regularly.
