Just took a few days off with the family. Came to Vermont to ski. After the 25 inches they received last Wednesday, it doesn’t get any better up here.
Walked into dinner a few nights ago and was behind Michael J. Fox. Ended up sitting at the table next to his. What a sweet man with a lovely family. I didn’t say anything to him (I think that is rude anyway) but I admired his spirit. You just couldn’t miss his positive nature.
It was a cold one yesterday, about -20 with wind chill but today is sunny and in the mid 20’s. Time to get up and hit the slope… after my cup of Vanilla Chai. I’ll let you know how the day goes…..should be a beauty!
Established in 2005, International Tea Day brings awareness to the tea workers’ contributions to the tea world and their working conditions. It has been observed annually on December 15. However, starting in 2020 it will take place on May 21. But, how exactly should one recognize it? Well, if you’re a business owner I would steer away from using this day as just another marketing opportunity. As someone in the marketing industry, I wanted to offer some other options that businesses, tea related or not, can take into consideration if they would like to honour International Tea Day.
I’ve been updating a spreadsheet on pu’erh prices on release for the past few years in order to get an idea of tea being offered to western consumers and any possible trends. The well-known popular narrative is that fresh pu’erh prices have gone up and this certainly seems true in the data. Last year the prices looked about the same as the previous year. And when and how much the price has gone up depends on how we look at this and there’s a handful of different ways to look at the data and options available (I do three here).
