Life has a strange way of breaking connections but at the same time giving an opportunity to those make the effort to establish new connections. Like water rushing down the river rapids, we may be parted by a rock, but in the end we will be one again. - retired emperor, Sutoku in Ogura Hyakunin Isshu This tea connects in many ways. By producing this tea from Shiiba Yama Cha tea trees, the Nepalese tea garden where this tea is grown, re-establishes the connection to tea trees of Shiiba village in Japan; by drinking this tea, a deep connection is made between Japan and Nepal.
