Back to China

Roy's back in China! After he recovers from jetlag and catches up on some family matters he has a busy tea agenda over the next several weeks. Included on the to-do list: checking out potential tea farms around the country, a visit to Yi Xing to see how the new teapots he ordered are coming along, a stop in Wu Yi Shan during the July old bush harvest, and more. He's promised to provide lots of updates and photos here on the blog, so stay tuned for the latest news, adventures, and previews of interesting items that will be arriving soon in the teahouse.

Roy returns to San Francisco in mid-August and shortly afterward will be firing the new Monkey-Picked Tie Guan Yin and teaching the much anticipated 2009 Oolong Tea Class. There's lots going on in the tea world this summer and we'll keep you posted here on Camellia Sinensis.
