    Loved, loved this one!

    Many years ago, while I was travelling, I was gifted Sri Lankan grown tea not sold in North America. I recall that the flavour profile being completely different from grocery store tea bags like Salada and Red Rose. The tea wasn’t particularly expensive. I think what I enjoyed about it was its freshness and cultivation for the local / surrounding market.

    Great interview, Kim! I always enjoy hearing from the person who got me started on my tea journey in 2018. Don’s passion is infectious and he communicates his knowledge in an effective and humble way. He also has a talent for bringing people together and building a sense of community. Tune in to a Mei Leaf Wednesday Live Session on YouTube (7:30pm London time) and you’ll see 200+ teaheads not just listening to Don and Celine, but chatting among(st) themselves. And not just about tea – we talk food, travel, philosophy, movies, and on and on. But it was tea that brought us together. I am impressed enough with Don and the entire Mei Leaf family that when deciding on a destination for my “big” retirement trip, I picked London, just to have tea with Don and meet Celine, Nola, Annie, and the “pu-boys”.
