Jinggu Golden Years: Which came first? Bowie or tea?

The beginnings of my tea drinking are lost in the mists of my adolescence somewhere. I only know that I’ve loved and been drinking it for a long time. In the same way, when I heard that David Bowie passed on today, I realized I have no idea how long I’ve been listening to them or how long they have been bringing joy into my life. Two unrelated things, yes. But they are two things with a long, meaningful membership in my life.

You may have heard some Chinese teas referred to as “tribute” teas? In honor of one of my musical heroes, I am renaming my Jinggu Golden Strand Yunnan black tea to “Jinggu Golden Years”. This is my Tribute Tea.

In addition, if you mention your favorite Bowie song or memory in the notes section of your order for Jinggu Golden Years, I will include a free Sampler Three Pack made up of other delicious Leaves of Cha teas.

There's a Starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds.

REMINDER: Make sure to reference Bowie in some way in the Notes section when you check out!
