"Early Spring Tea Rite"

Posted on April 6, 2013 at 10:25 PM

Here is one way to get rid of tea leaves that were severely affected by this winter's harsh weather conditions. The sound of mechanical shearing is heard throughout Hwagae Valley. The camellia sinensis tea bushes are carefully and neatly sheared to allow new growth to peek out from beneath the eyesore leaves of winter past. The pruned tea leaves will provide beneficially organic tea mulch for the rows of nutrient starved tea shrubs. Lush virgin growth will hopefully begin to sprout in the coming weeks in time for the first harvest around mid-April. This picture was taken about 1 week ago.


A few light, spring rain showers in the past few weeks came to the rescue, but more is needed if the camellia sinensis shrubs are going to produce a quality tea harvest. According to the weather forecast for the coming week, rain is expected and that will bode well for the local tea farmers throughout Jirisan.

Live well,
Jirisan Gabriel
