New teas

The season seems to be in full swing now. It was late but quality seems just fine!

We are getting two nice First Flush Darjeelings: Risheehat and Puttabong. My son, Alex, just got back from Darjeeling. He had a blast filming the First Flush. Our friends in Suzhou are sending some nice Bi Lo Chun. And samples of Lung Ching anyday.  Today I tasted a Shincha Sencha from the very southern Japanese island of Yakushima. I have never had tea from there. It was a deep steamed Sencha with lots of body, but not the nose of a Uji Sencha. 

So we are quite happy to have these new teas
