Frankly, there isn’t an answer to Dan’s question – a once-in-a-lifetime trip spins many stories. At our San Diego Tea Meetup group on July 17, I presented a slide show of my trips to the tea fields of India, China, and the Charleston Tea Plantation here in America. We focused mostly on India, sipped Indian teas, and journeyed deep into the fields and factories. Along the way, we also enjoyed the fashion as well as the fascinating sites of the upper northeastern region of India. We climbed the hills and winding roads of Darjeeling, soared down to the bumpy plains of Dooars, and even ventured as far as Bihar, which takes you very close to the borders of Nepal and Bangladesh. All of these expeditions took me to tea fields. I only mentioned fashion because my daughter, Savannah – who has helped me serve tea since she was nine (she is entering her senior year of high school) – and I were dressed in sarees that I brought back from India.
