ManaTea infuser

Personally, I prefer infusers made of steel or ceramic, but I have to admit the ManaTea is an exceedingly clever idea. And the little guy does look so mellow.

Surprise snow on Mt. Aso



I just received this photo of a suddenly snow-covered Mt. Aso that greeted a surprised populace Saturday morning. It's so unusual to get snow after the cherry blossoms have bloomed, the sender commented.

Aso's tea plants are due to be harvested in another month and a half, roughly, and I hope the unseasonal weather doesn't adversely affect them. Only time and taste will tell.
