Well kept tea leaves not only taste better as they age, but they look better too!
I took them for a photo tour in the open last week, and here are two of my best shots. I am still amazed by how easy it is to make beautiful pictures with them. It's like having top models in the palm of your hands. They agree to bare it all and never loose their temper.
The red-brown stems and black leaves have not lost their shine. On the contrary, the taste has matured and concentrated. The result can be almost as black as coffee, but soothing and calm like tea.
