Returned Leaves with Tea
Last October I collected autumn leaves in Plänterwald and mounted them at home. Now one lear later I wanted to return the leaves to the same forest to be digested back into the planet naturally. I brewed an oolong tea to celebrate the occasion.
All of the tea I’ve consumed in the past month.
White, green, oolong, black, puerh.
China, Japan, Korea, India, Ceylon.

The stem plus three leaves were hand rolled into a tiny ball. After a few steeps it unfurled completely. These are quality oolong leaves.
