New blog site

I have just created my new blog site which is more for in-depth reviews, discussions, and info on tea specifically. It won’t be personal as this one, which will be more on my personal life and tea rather than the reviews itself. Please follow my other one; as it will be regularly updated. The new blog is Thank you so much, and hope to see you soon.

2013 Aged White Tea

image.jpgimageMy experience today was something fascinating. Today as it was cloudy and wet, I needed something soft and refreshing, so I chose to have a session of aged white tea.  Somehow I felt like I was drinking pure water. No tea, like as if my taste buds were not working. Well, that’s not really the case. I felt as if the tea and I were one, and we were merging together as my awareness increases. The tea is inseparable, and as if I became one with the tea. Tea making is not only a practice of awareness and art, but in fact a yoga, a meditation that involves your wisdom, prajna aspect and your compassion, the karuna aspect. The wisdom aspect is the part that you use as the knowledge, which is everything that you know, and will know. Every perspective, movement, gesture, comes from knowledge and understanding, and this is the wisdom aspect of making the tea. The karuna aspect will be the motivation, energy and force. What makes you create the cup of tea, is through the aspiration, intention, and the creation of thought. Through focusing on these two points, our soul can be digged deeper, and making tea can really explain our nature of mind. When I was enjoying this tea, this is the feeling I got because of the richness of nutrients of the leaves, making me feel much more open and flexible. When you drink good tea, it is much more easier to activate your chi, and see the results for yourself. I really recommend this tea if you are interested to discover something more, a deeper experience, and the way of tea yoga.

Self Introduction

Hello, to all the teaheads out there.

I am Shinzo Shiratori, a currently fourteen years old obsessed tea lover. Located in Calgary, and lived in Vancouver for five years, I love everything and anything about tea! I completed my first professional tea course in Vancouver, at the Best Tea House on April 21st, 2017. I am certified with completion of the highest level of tea course from the Best Tea House. This blog is for people who are looking for more knowledge, experience, and sharing about tea related topics, such as tasting, appreciating, trying to understand and also being closer with tea. I think that tea brings people together, relationships closer, and your life better. Tea is a flexible topic, and my goal for the world is to improve peoples wellbeing with tea making. I am extremely passionate about tea making, and consider tea as not only a drink, but a lifetime journey. I will do reviews on tea samples I receive and share about the experience, and companies such as O5 tea, Silver Crescent Tea, Oollo Tea, the Best Tea House, and Spiritea have all agreed to share there teas with me and to provide them with the appropriate feedback. I am sure not an expert, but I think the viewers would very much be interested in hearing this kid rumble tea. If you have any questions or would like to be a part of this blog, please leave me a message at I hope you will enjoy the ride, sit back, relax, and I will see you soon.

Thank you,

Shinzo Shiratori
