Shincha Masters matters ...

by Chip » Jun 5th 10 12:24 am

Hey hey hey ...
Adagio Shincha
Is coming my way!
I should have it Tuesday. Correct me if I am wrong, I think this is the first Adagio Shincha offering ever! It is a Fukamushi from Shizuoka prefecture.

I haven't gotten started with our twitter and facebook accounts, been quite busy working on a book project. We're planning on publishing a booklet on the history of tea as a gift to our sexy customers. I spent all day procuring some really fine images to include. :D

Thanks for the reminder though. Monday I'll make announcements on our twitter and facebook accounts about the new Masters. People gotta know...!

And what will you gift to the non-sexy customers? Not that I'll have to worry about it, I'm sure I'll qualify for a booklet. :twisted: :lol: :mrgreen:

I did have a question... is there a place on the Adagio site with specific harvest information? I'm not sure if its not there, or if I'm missing it. I ask because of the mention of a sample of Spring Darjeeling. I haven't ordered any recently, because I was hoping to wait for this year's fresh harvest... but I don't know how to tell if I'm getting 2010 harvest or something left from last year? I'm assuming the samples are of the new harvest?

Thanks,

Sarah

Don't doubt your sexiness. Beauty is in the eye of the bee-holder. :!:


Sarah, I'll ask Michael, but... I highly doubt we're offering a year old harvest.

Would be awesome on all the time-sensitive teas, if there was some harvest dating info on the Adagio site. Thanks for hearing the suggestion. :)
