Happy National Hot Tea Month!

Hello tea people!

Thank you all for making 2011 such a wonderful year. We had great fun with great tea masters including TsuYoshi Sugimoto, James Norwood Pratt, and of course our resident tea men John and Michael Harney.
We drank a lot of great tea last year too! We saw Wild Wuyi Black, the earthy and meaty Chinese black tea, come and go. We had our first taste at an Indonesian black tea and a Darjeeling oolong tea. We are still keeping an eye on the effects of the unfortunate events in Japan, and are doing our best to help their economy by buying (and drinking!) delicious Japanese green tea.
This weekend we are enjoying some Lapsang Souchong in honor of Sherlock Holmes’ 158th birthday. (It was his favorite tea.)
