This is good for the Chinese farmers and hope it happens for them. White tea continues to be very popular in China, so customers outside of China will have a hard time finding white tea and it may be pricier too. Today is the first day to traditionally harvest tea in China in the higher altitudes and a few weeks later for lower elevations. To read more please click on the link.

The Eclectic Market was good, though a little slow. The weather is most likely the reason because there were a lot of really great vendors and it was snowing. I still did decently. Sunday when I did not have any event the weather was nice. Monday evening when I had my class, we had an ice storm, so I had to cancel my class. Welcome to Wisconsin and winter here. Ok, it is not as bad as the picture I used.
Hopefully, soon I can have some time to make some more blends. I have a couple ideas but want to see how they turn out before saying what they are. I enjoy preparing my classes and getting ready for vendor events, but haven’t done any blending in a while and kinda want to do some of that. Hopefully soon.
I should also take care of a shipment I received from Taiwan. Some really nice oolongs.
