Progressing slowly

Posted in Inspirational by François-Xavier Delmas | Tags : , ,

For me, tea is more than a goal, it’s a path. I can’t imagine ever knowing everything there is to know about tea. A lifetime isn’t enough. Tea is a path: what’s important to me isn’t arriving, but progressing. Progressing in my knowledge of the plant, in my knowledge of the art of processing the leaves, progressing on my journey through the tea fields to reach the villages where the communities live. Progressing slowly but surely, in a world where everyone is rushing.

  • So true….after 43 years in tea, I still feel like a ” baby in the woods ” … getting surprised everyday , at what this amazing crop & the communities delivers. I am indeed blessed to have worked with tea !
