Happy Sheep !

Can you believe it? It’s already been a week since the Bendigo Show ! I have been home 5 days ! In those five days there has been lots of stock counting, organizing and getting all the July clubs ready for shipping , all done while still totally “overcome” by the hubbub of the show and feeling “under the weather” (understatement of the

No rest for the wicked bunny they say …eh? .

Bendigo show was absolutely amazing. It is amazing every year but thanks to my fabulous helpers this year , Emma and Maggie and my bearded dragon Paul, Everything went smoothly. I felt like the Queen every now and again, being told to take it easy and sit down! (although that got on my nerves after a while not being used to this kind of pampering….lol Also, I have to admit, I did it again…I brought more than I had room for ! Which amazed me terribly since I was out of commission for a large amount of the time before the show.

Bendigo Show is a HUGE undertaking and I feel very very blessed to have so many people reach out and offer to help me. I am honoured and so humbled by all your help and your support ! Without you there would not be an IxCHeL fibre Farm ! You are my inspiration and my drive. Thank you with all my heart !!!

I have some photos of my stall at the Bendigo show on my facebook and insta page if you want to have a look at what it looked like before the doors opened on Friday morning last week 😊

IxCHeL Buddhas tears tea

carefully packed and presented in a special organza gift bag

50g/ AU$19

Two organically grown superior green tea leaves and a jasmine bud are plucked from the best quality tea bushes and mixed with delicately smelling jasmine blossoms, then sieved and hand rolled on bamboo trays, into small balls while the leaves are not quite dry. 

The leaf captures the fine jasmine aroma and releases it during brewing, giving a champagne coloured cup. 

 Brewing: 1-3 minutes 75-80degC , 

 4 pearls/cup, 

you can reinfuse 3-4 times so those 4 pearls last a looong time

Carefully handrolled tea

Enjoy the tea over and over again, by adding hot water again and again
