Hello hello!

2017 was a fantastic year for tea. There were so many ups and down, especially the late winter that Yunnan experienced that negatively affected many tea yields. Despite the troubles, many tea companies came out with many surprises. This was not only a good year for tea, it was also a good year for the tea community as well.
