On November 18th, some of the world's finest teas and teaware from around the world will be auctioned for Charity at Teaism at their 8th Street location in Washington, DC. We are participating in this and have donated some of our finest Makaibari teas - 2nd flush, Silver Tips, Long Leaf Green and the book on Makaibari, "The Rajah of Darjeeling" for the event. It will benefit the HandReach Children's Healing Initiative which brings state-of-the-art reconstructive surgery, prosthetics, equipment, physical, occupational and psychosocial therapy to pediatric trauma survivors at no cost to them or their families. An online auction is also underway until November 19th, powered by MissionFish and can be accessed at www.ebay.com/handreach. We hope you will check it out - it's a great cause.
