Bali's flavors, textures, and aromas


Bali’s team suggests that tea enthusiasts explore two or more tees from each class of tea and become familiar with the
flavors, textures, and aromas of each style of leaf manufacture.

Steep our teas according to the instructions that we supply, and keep notes on what you like and don’t like. A good part of the fun of enjoying tea is derived from the challenge of selecting the leaf that you will be check. Some teas require more supervision during steeping than others, and others are more sensitive to the temperature of the steeping water.
You will quickly determine whether you enjoy just the oxidized teas - such as black and Oolong, only fresher-tasting, astringent greens, yellows, and tweeds, the complex, dark and highly oxidized oolongs, the earthy, full-flavored Pu-erhs, or whole tea, of every stripe and color.
If your day has periods of quiet time, a sweet and delicate green or white tea should add pleasure to contemplative moments.
Love to socialize with friends over tea? A distinctive Oolong or Pu-erh is perfect for an interactive gong fu tea-drinking session that everyone will enjoy participating in.
Tea in most cultures is a social drink, although it also serves as a comfort when enjoyed alone during quiet times of contemplation or can serve as a  get-up-and-go  tonic first thing in the morning.
Whenever and however you take your tea, select it with care and thoughtfulness and it will reward you with a thoroughly pleasurable experience every time.
