Tea type: green tea Tea name: Kukicha Origin: Japan Harvest: 2016 Bought: through Tomotcha monthly tea subscription  Impression: this tea has a very smooth taste which I can best describe as freshly baked cookies coming out of the oven. This is really the association I had when I had my first sip. The tea is stronger in flavor than a sencha tea and does contain a slightly stronger astringency. I can recommend up to three steepings, although the first two…

Two weeks ago I spent a couple of days in Hamburg. Although I have never been a huge fan of the city – who knows for which reason – I really loved the days I spent there. It was such a nice trip and in addition, the weather was just amazing. I found some cool spots and places and had a great time exploring the city. Where I stayed: Schanzenviertel through airbnb. I can highly recommend to stay in this…

After a few days in Qingdao, we…

Surely, I have to come back once again to further discover this nice city.  For now, have a look at my favorite pic(k)s! I started…

It was my second time in the city, so I wanted to take it a little more slow this time. Therefore, my priority was on finding some nice tea or coffee place and spending some quality time at a relaxing spot with a bit of sunshine. I think I did pretty well, but get a picture for yourself! Hotel pick:…

Browsing through the internet one day, I found this amazing tea startup company called Dachi Tea. I really like their company story and their idea behind the brand Dachi Tea. The idea was to firstly find the best raw material tea leaves and secondly, finding the best tea makers from all over Taiwan to create very unique oolong teas from the raw tea leaves provided. And that is exactly what Dachi Tea did! When you look at their website, you…
