Snow on the tea leaves

Koji Nagata, our grower–artisan in Aso, just sent us this photo of some of his tea plants covered in the heavy snow that just fell there. Tea plants need a cold winter in order to hibernate thoroughly, saving up their delicious energy for vibrant growth in the spring.

A deep winter's rest
A cold wind blows around me
Snow on the tea leaves
