When O-Cha reopens I'm planning to buy some canisters. No tea until the 2011 harvest is available, unless I decide to buy some gyokuro.

In my cup this morning, a continuation of the puerh I was drinking yesterday - 2007 White Bud 250g Sheng Pu-Erh Tea Cake by Norbu Tea - a sample of which I received as a gift from a fellow Teachatter. Then the last of my 2010 Tai Ping Hou Kui from 7 Cups.

I am sure some tea will follow soon, but I made an order just last week before spring so I am good until the harvests start coming in.
Exactly the same here. I received my latest sencha order yesterday (plus a few delicacies).

The Rock will be on its way soon.

But realizing there were a few holes in my current tea inventory, a couple of tea orders from last year's harvests recently arrived.

I've already been buying some new tea cannisters and sorting out a wee Tea Shrine in my room, last year I seemed to be having a cup frenzie and this year it is tea cadddies. :roll:

Spring is very slow in springing in my garden this year :o
apart from Narcissus 'Tete A Tete' which is outgrowing the slow performing Muscarii

But my Pulsatillas are growing on and should be good for Easter :P

an early season Rosemary Flower is a pleasant addition to the front Garden

Hopefully multiple kinds of tea! My friends and I are planning a trip to Mitsuwa Market in April, and I'm crossing my fingers wishing to find some awesome tea there!

Rose congou all day today; heating up water for some lavender sencha right now.

First, a new Hagi cup will Rock my world. My first spring tea for me though is usually a first flush Darjeeling and I hope this new tea year is no exception.

I ended the TeaDay with some honey orchid oolong from Dragon Tea House.
