i was, as i still am, affected by concern for those who suffered due to the tragic events, and their recovery.
for tea drinking, i was not affected, as i prefer japanese teas from non-effected regions and continued to purchased those teas in 2011. (kyoto area and kyushu).
a bit off topic but i think can be mentioned here, obubu tea has a tea relief caravan: "we will travel through northern japan to serve tea to those who have lost their homes." jan 5-19
it is on their web site, which doesn't seem to open to that page right now. but i find it a kind gesture to bring healing through tea.
