Its all in the Leaf.

The question itself is futile, of course to tea would be the correct answer, the benefits alone of tea consumption is reason enough.

The tradition of sharing tea and conversation is ancient,

many disputes have been settled over a cup of tea, many dreams realized, many truths have come to light.

Choosing which tea to consume comes down to simply, needs, taste and in my case mood.

Truly, Its all in the Leaf.

Learning about the history of tea has been a journey of discovery,

it is astounding to know how tea is cared for cherished and dispersed for worldly consumption.

It isĀ  a labor of love and dedication like no other, one leaf at a time.
