It’s that season again… I’m packing up my bags and about to set off for Yunnan again. I’ve spent the past few weeks drinking through the teas we’ve pressed over the past five years, trying to glean whatever experience I could from them. In general they seem to be ageing well. A couple of them seem to have emerged from a bit of a slump that they were in for a year or two. A couple have become a little thin, but I’m pretty happy overall… especially that our tastes and abilities to choose tea seem to be improving year on year.
Kathy’s been in Yunnan for the past week, catching up with her family and making some arrangements for our trip to the mountains. We hope to do some filming when we’re there and post some videos here on our blog. I think in this digital age, it’s really nice to be able to make some videos & help share our experiences in the tea mountains with those who will drink the teas.
I’ve been hanging on in the UK waiting for a shipment of teapots to arrive. They’ve finally turned up & I’ve spent the day checking & photographing them and listing them on our website. You should be able to see them on our Yixing Teapots page.
Hopefully by this time next week I’ll be in the tea mountains!
