New blog posting about Camellias
I recently wrote this about my awakening to the tea plant, Camellia sinensis and want to share.
Please let me know what you think.
Here's the introduction.
"Est-ce tu veux une infusion?" * My French host mother asked me after dinner one night. (I was an exchange student at the time, in Aix-en-Provence, in 1994.)
Translated this means, "Do you want an infusion?" I assumed she meant tea, with a little of the typical French affectation.** "Du thÃ¯Â¿Â½?" I asked with a raised and slightly amused eyebrow, thinking I had outwitted her.
