A Purchase On What we Thought was Our Last Day in Lijang

With a notion that we needed to buy SOMETHING in China ( where everything is made but where other than the indigo we'd seen nothing we wanted to buy), we went back to beautiful Old Town in search of good chinese tea.

There are many tea shops in Old Town but H knew of one that was finer than most and, if ceremony counts, this shop was truly fine. Pouring and brewing and tasting was an art in this shop.

We ended up buying a tin of a great tea but because of the process of making it...a good bit of soaking and pouring out the soaking water, and I cant remember how many times this is done, only that it is important...I have been a little timid about trying it. The tin is very pretty though!
