A horticulturist by profession, Mike not only became fascinated by the plant, Camellia sinensis, and the tea beverage it produces, but also by the history of the specifically varietal he discovered. He has spent years studying the lineage of the plants that are part of both Japanese and American history.
Currently researching the connection that his plants share with Japan, Mike is devoting his time and expertise to the Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Farm restoration process.
Golden Feather Tea
With only 500 plants old enough to pluck, the shorter season at this elevation and the fact that everything from leaf to cup is an intense labor of love by this one Tea Man, it is understandable that the 2016 Golden Feather Teas will be available in very limited amounts.
