Well, my fellow tea lovers, I am off on a journey to India on Monday, and I cannot begin to tell you how much I’m looking forward to it.  The preparations for this trip have been going on for some time, so the reality that the date is finally upon us, is slowly hitting me.  My trip will begin at the Tea Board of India, and then take me to the fragrant mountains of Darjeeling.  From there, I will move on to the tea rich region of Assam and then wrap up the journey at the Tocklai Tea Research Institute.  The trip is filled with visits to tea friends, temples and some of my favourite tea estates.

I will keep this space updated along my journey and hope you all come along for the adventure.
