|The story of tea in sculptures|
|This series of sculptures, made of teapots and tea cups, |
with a dragon head on the first pot and a dragon tail on the last one,
represents the spirit of the plantation, since "oolong" means "black dragon."
|So happy to share this experience with my people!|
|The trimming machine is the only machine |
that touches the plants while they are in the field.
All tea leaves are picked by hand.
|The oversized chairs at the function center were a big hit with the boys.|
(And, even with plenty of room to spread out, they are still touching each other!)
|Trying on the tea picker hats|
|A special treat:|
passion fruit macaroons infused and sprinkled with aromatic oolong tea
|This is not the variety of camila used for making tea,|
but they are scattered throughout the plantation to give a pop of color,
as the plants from which the tea leaves come are never allowed to bloom.
