2009 crop report

My friend, Marcus Wulf is traveling through South Asia. Here are his preliminary reports:

"It is very very dry in parts of Assam (North Bank only) in Darjeeling, in Nilgiri, in the Anamalai, Karnatata, High Range, Wayanand, Travancore and also very very dry in Sri Lanka overall. Crops will be down.
Flying to Darjeeling in few hours and will be back in Kolkata on the 09th. Have a nice weekend."

Some first flush teas Darjeelings have happened. We bought some Frost tea from Chamraj. Marcus reports all the major Dimbulla gardens in Sri Lanka have had problems. Let us hope for some rain soon!
