We’ve been particularly busy as of late. The teahouse is progressing steadily, and it seems like there might be enough support from the local community to make it work. We’ve also been working on improving our ranges of teas and teaware online. All of Master Huang’s handmade yancha this year is exceptional. We’ve been tasting samples and have some of them on the way. Hopefully they should be available online soon, including some lesser known varietals.
