Jeff's knowledge is extensive and colored with the stories behind the tea especially the trade routes of tea and the old tea explorers. Stories filled with nomads and a lifetime of tea living in remote areas at the edge of the world. It brings tingles down my spine that tea has such a history in men and women's lives, building empires and traveling through exotic lands.
So, when you drink tea it is a quiet reflection of the people, the land and the road traveled to bring you that first sip. No wonder it started as a precious commodity kept under lock and key.
To know the story of tea, is to respect the leaf, the journey and the lives it has touched.
