Monday/ medium-grown Dimbula tea

There is no Memorial Day in China.    (I borrowed the flag and yellow ribbon from Google’s home page).     So we’re at work and the tea I drink these days is black tea from Marks & Spencer in Hong Kong.    I like it – but to get the ‘pale bright color’ touted on the packaging, one has to yank the bag out of the cup after barely a minute or two of steeping.     And I am no tea expert so I had to look up Dimbula tea (one of the original areas where tea was planted, and probably the most famous Ceylon tea) and ‘medium-grown’ (refers to the elevation of where the tea is grown, not the height of the tea plant !).
