At the last session of the Rochester Tea Society, we went very classical, trying out matcha that had been hand carried all the way from Japan by Janette one of our members. We were lucky to have Cody Kroll lead the presentation, since he is the most knowledgeable among us of the Japanese tea traditions. And also to drink matcha while surrounded by Cody's beautiful works most of which is inspired by Japanese tea tradition was a huge bonus.

Rochester Tea Society meets once a month and it is open to the public. However, registration is required because of limited seating capacity.

I hope you will enjoy the photo album from the meeting.

We were hoping hard that somehow the political troubles that have engulfed Darjeeling since early June would ease off and second flush production would resume. But last week we heard from our partner tea gardens in Darjeeling and they gave us the dreaded news.
