Mr Weijin (Tom) He, pronounced Hay,  visited the Fairhope Tea Plantation for a couple days this week and helped make a batch of green tea.  Tom’s family are tea makers along with several of his friends.  He has moved to the Washington DC area.  Donnie and Tom discussed intently the processes of making green tea.  We talked, laughed, questioned each other, and ourselves,  constantly and repeated ourselves with passion and great intensity.  We covered the subject of green tea making and we both enjoyed ourselves and he gave me great insight on the craft.  When he left, we had made a pretty good batch of tea with older leaves and we are now great friends!
