After staying with my family in Germany for the last 6 weeks, I’m back in the gloomy autumn of Christchurch. Sorry for not being able to handle any orders in my absence, but in times of hardship, family is the most important thing.
While I spent most of my time supporting my sister and her children as well as enjoying the beautiful spring in Europe, I found some time to tend to some pressing business: the fresh harvest of 2011 Darjeeling First Flushes. I sampled many, many teas and selected 3 that will be available through Ya-Ya soon. I’ve also brought back some beautiful older pu-erhs from China on my way back, but more on these in a future post.
For all of you who’ve sent emails while I was away, I’ll get back to you in the next few days.
