Tea Production Struggles, New Rooibos And Bigger Sizes

It seems like our tea supplies are under attack all over the world. The tea estates in Shizuoka Japan are readying them selves for their spring harvest and they are having to battle with power outages and food shortages. Luckily the radioactivity is far enough away to not have to worry about but it certainly will have an impact as most of the Japanese production relies on electricity to run the machines used to pick, form and steam the tea. While this is going on in Japan all tea exports from Darjeeling, India has been stopped due to a labor dispute. The first flush harvest is underway but its production progress will certainly be impacted as well as its chance to be exported. Luckily none of this will impact our tea supplies for at least a year on most of our teas but there are some teas that we move in such high quantity like matcha that might possibly start having shortages. I hope we don’t have to worry about those issues I am much more worried about the plight the Japanese people are having to endure.
