Enough is enough, I told myself. You must be feeling better now.
So, I drove off to the Zealong Tea Estate with my friend Tomoko. Who would have thought that camelias could turn into delicious tea? A Taiwanese man, certain that the climate was suitable to grow camelias and the particular breed that turns into Oolong tea formed this tea estate in 2009.
wraps, filo baskets, toasted tortilla crisps with pesto dip, freshly baked scone
with vanilla bean mascarpone, house-made raspberry preserve, and two almond tarts.
Well replete, Tomoko and I soaked up the scenery and sun before driving home to Auckland.
And yes, I am feeling better now although am still half deaf, croaky in voice and tired of being confined to home, books and DVDs.

Have a good evening everyone.
