Hello from Great Tea Road. I am happy of having the first newsletter published. It starts a new year again. This year is a Sheep year in Asian Zodiac. In Japan, we would say Akemashite Omedeto gozaimasu. A Happy New year!
My daughter and I have been practicing many Japanese dances. We will be a part of Japanese-American Society to perform in the Festival of Nations at St. Paul River Center on April 30 - May 3. Please stop by to see our performance if you have a chance. It should be fun to watch the show from many countries as well as to try new food.
This month special:
Recently, a friend of mine was telling me how to get maple syrup from our own tree. It may sound silly but I feel an attachment and do not want to damage our tree since I planted it myself.
After thinking about it for awhile, I thought we could do a special on our USDA Certified Organic Black Maple. It has been cold in Minnesota with many sub-zero days. A good hot cup of tea would be nice.
It is 10% off a regular price of $11.95 until 1/31/15.

A Japanese stamp with sheep knitting a scarf started 12 years ago. If you look at them closely - one is knitting a scarf (left) and one is wearing a finished scarf (right). The price of the stamp is also increased by 2 yens! I just thought it is an interesting stamp to collect. Wouldn't you agree?
Lastly, many of my family members and friends are sick from this cold weather. Please take a good care of yourself. Best wishes for this year with a lot of happiness and prosperous year a head of you. Come by to say hi or just send a short note is always appreciated.
