Tea estates

Tea estates are so beautifully mesmerizing, somehow. Maybe it's about seeing the source, or those curving fields, or thinking of the pleasure of brewing tea...

P.S. It's getting easier to find high-quality "fair-trade" tea. Click here for just one example at Rishi Tea (delicious stuff).
