Lightly Roasted Iced Green places 1st again at the NATC

Our Lightly Roasted Iced Green Tea has won 1st place once again at the North American Tea Championship, making two consecutive years that our iced green has received the judges' highest score in its class there.

We will post photos of the award or plaque once it arrives. In the meantime, we would like to thank all of you for your ongoing support, without which there would be no Mellow Monk.

Tea for the gods

From a wonderful book, a wonderful passage about a fisherman family living on the shores of Lake Kasumigaura in the 1920s:

We always got up in the dark, and the first thing we did was make tea. When it was ready, my father would say, "Now let's give the gods their tea." First came the gods, then the humans. He'd set a cup of hot tea in the prow.
