Last week’s Bamboo and Loquat Meet-up was a delight. A fellow member brought some delightful stash. We also chugged down some cold-brew, which seemed to inspire some creativity. I’ve posted some pictures here and thereon the cold-brew and spoke upon it in the previous newsletter’s August Farewell.
You may want to mark 18 October on your calendar. That will be the date for our Three Tea Journey, more on that in the coming weeks. In the meantime, you might be interested a bamboo sampler that is being offered. Bamboo tea, that is. It is a pu’er aging method, where tea, raw or ripe, is packed into the hollow core of bamboo and then roasted over a flame then stored. The roasting infuses the tea with some of the properties of bamboo. In Chinese medicine bamboo is used for phlegm, either in the lungs, liver or heart. Applications apply to such clinical conditions as asthma, weight loss, psycho-emotional disorders, and coronary-heart disease.
