Day 13 TeaCoupGlobal. Kalachakra is an ancient ritual that involves a series of prayers, meditations, dances, chants, vows and the construction of a large sand mandala - all with the aim to bring world peace. Kalachakra 2014 began July 8 and will last for ten days in Leh, the main town of the mountainous district of Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir. One of the traditions during the festival is monks filling their teapots - running to the Buddhist devotees and serving them tea! May peace find you where ever you are🙏#teacoupglobal #tea #peace#buddhist#festival#ritual#kalachakra#teacoup#ayurvedicteaologist - pic CRT Boston.com
Today’s tea tasting features a special guest: Loki the Tea Cat!
Brewing in two yixing pots really brings this tea’s deep hazelnut and caramel flavors forward, letting the juicer guava, watercress and bright vanilla notes play across the top of the sip.
