Back from China: Return to Cyberspace

I can't believe the month of May is almost over!  The time has flown since my return from China.  It's taken me a long time to get over the jetlag.

Trip was awesome!  Back with even greater appreciation for how much there is still to learn about tea. There's a Chinese proverb that goes something like this...

                 "Reading ten thousand books is not as useful as traveling ten thousand miles."  

Reading a book can tell you how steep the mountains will be, how fresh and sweet the air is in a valley of tea fields, but until you've been there, it's just not the same.  But I'm happy to report that I've been there!

Everyone's asking "can I see your photos"?  Hey, I want to see them too!  I'm working hard at it and I've only made it through half so far!   So, here's a few samples to show some appetizer of sorts.

That's it for now.  Stay tuned, more to come soon!
