Well – we just returned from our trip to Asia. It was fantastic. Such a different world than the one that surrounds us. We were fortunate enough to be a part of the spring harvest pick in Japan. The smells in the factory were beautiful – a sweet gorgeous smell that can only come from the freshest young leaves. It was an amazing experience. From Tokyo we went on to Vietnam – a whole other world again. Friendly and welcoming – what a beautful place – and I can’t forget the chaos. Fascinating – as we were coming from the order and precision of Japan – but the chaos seems to work somehow. We weren’t as impressed with the tea – but the industry is young – so I’m sure that it will develop.
