A Gift: Just you and tea (through 24 solar seasons with 24 Chinese calligraphy paintings)
Uncoated recycled Eco-friendly paper book
Welcome to your tea journal.
I was inspired to create this journal for you from my own personal tea journey. Even though specific foods or teas are paired with the seasons or Solar Terms, I found that an intuitive embodied approach brought me in touch with myself and helped me connect with myself.
It was during these times of seasonal and personal change that I was inspired to create the brush painting artwork that you will find in this journal. I’ve spent much time, alone, in silence drinking tea. Journaling has given me the pause to reflect on, not only the aroma, taste and characteristics of the tea, the tea farmers, the planting and harvesting of the tea, the changing of seasons and life itself but the interconnectedness of it all.
This is your journal to document your journey, thoughts, feeling, experiences, emotions, tea and changes throughout the seasons. On opposite pages you will find original brush painting artwork (print of artwork hand painted by me, Yao Yao) of the solar terms, the Pin Yin and English translation as well as the starting date of the Solar Term. You will also find a space to document the tea you enjoyed as well as space for self expression.
I wish you the greatest success and fulfillment!
Yours in tea,
