Re: Ode to the Kyusu

Yowza. Blue. Drippy. The purple-red areas with pale spots are like H&E stained cells view under a microscope. Cool beans. And cute shape to boot.

Re: What Herbal Are You Drinking

Beautiful. The blend is interesting: I’m trying to imagine the taste and thinking of rose water added to cinnamon in a rice pudding: if the floral and spice are delicately handled, should be as fine a taste as it is a fine vision.
