  • Review: East Indian Tea & A Little More History
    Today's review is the East Indian Tea from Oliver Pluff & Co. Before I gave it a taste, I asked owner Kyle Brown a little more about this tea, and he told me the East Indian tea is grown in Assam from tea gardens containing plants combined from wild-growing tea trees discovered by the British, and the finer Chinese tea tree varieties that they brought over. This is of course a tea that was imported into the… ... read more

Viennent ensuite les facteurs naturels, la pluie étant le plus évident. Un léger stress est favorable jusqu’à un certain point où il peut s’avérer dommageable pour la plante.
