With the 100 Days of Building Creativity E-Course beginning on June 16th, I've been preparing and reflecting on where I've been, and thought I'd share with you the content of my past and future 100 day projects.
May 2018 “Cloud Temple” Fresh Spring Green Tea
One of my three creative endeavors I wanted to pursue this year was gardening. I’ve always loved the idea of a garden, I even go so far as to buy and plant things, but that’s usually where my participation in the process wanes. I may receive a few cherry tomatoes, but the plants stay small due to lack of nourishment and attention, and pretty soon it is a sad weedy mess. This year I swore to myself it would be different, which I’ve sworn before, but these year it truly has.
"Prairie Sky" 1990s Black Tea
According to this month's Global Tea Hut Tea and Tao Magazine, Praire Sky is meant to be boiled in a pot, the oldest tea brewing method.
One of the origin of tea stories also shared is that a tea leaf fell down into a monk’s boiling pot of water as he was meditating, and thus man’s relationship with tea was formed.
By boiling you can get so much more out of the tea I am told this month, and so I boil it.
