kōrero / my story:
My first memory with tea was when I was 5 in my parents farm shed, early 1970’s. My parents owned a hop farm and employed 20 or so people each harvest season. My job was to help mum make the cuppa tea. The loose tea arrived in Choysa branded wooden boxes, lids nailed down. The boxes were always reused, at one stage in my life I stored my tape collections but mostly they were used as toolboxes for nuts and bolts on the farm.
