Eight more hours and I fly back home to Hawaii. How quickly college has come to an end! We went out for a hot pot dinner at Little Sheep in San Gabriel tonight, but I’ll do the post on that later. For our post dinner, back-in-dorm dessert…
Cake! It’s a gorgeous dark chocolate with coffee buttercream creation from Some Crust Bakery in the Claremont Village. Tonight we’re celebrating three birthdays and two year-early graduations – do it all in one go!

The seven of us finished the entire cake in less than an hour, a very impressive feat if I do say! I’m the one standing up…trying to digest our huge dinner!
Here’s a “good-bye” to the sweetest roommate I’ve ever had, Meg from Tokyo. (That’s cake frosting if you’re curious :)
And a graduation gift from Meg: the most perfect little Kate Spade accessory, made for holding all these future accounting business cards…or more likely, all the business cards I collect from restaurants!
Goodbye to my messy dorm room!

If you follow what gets said about prices each year, you would end up with the impression that the average price of tea has gone up. But more specifically the price at the most sought after regions (say Lao Banzhang, Bingdao) have gone completely through the roof. A lot of this narrative is anecdotal. Tales of rich Chinese buying up all the top-end product from X area. Part of it can also be seen when someone in the Sinosphere posts the maocha prices per location. These lists come with all sorts of contextual caveats, but the trend seems real. I don’t see any red flags to really doubt this storyline, but I was curious if it’d show up by looking at some of the data of prices on production by western facing vendors.
