Clear Heart - Aloeswood and Herb Blend - 20 Sticks (5-1/2" sticks)
This beautiful incense is a balanced blend of aloeswood with other herbs. The aroma is intoxicating and wonderful for tea and meditation. Generally, we use aloeswood as opposed to other incense around teaware and tea because it doesn't cling to the items, thus influencing the flavor. Therefore, this blend would be good for leaves in a bowl tea, but not ideal for tea with many tea utensils. It's ideal with both dark, earthy teas and lighter floral teas. We recommend breaking off small 1 inch pieces and dropping them onto a bed of ash in the bottom of an incense censer. They can also be burned upright in an incense stand, but this method is best for altar incense as continuously burning incense during a tea ceremony can be distracting from the tea.
