Chinese tea harvest predicted to be strong

Weather Watchers Predict Strong China Harvest

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.

Weather in Wisconsin

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.
