Vendor wandering day!
After running about the vendor floor, and not getting to see everything, it was time to head to the four seasons for tea with some fabulous people. I took a Taxi and it broke down on the way! It was a mess, it broke down in the middle of the road and I had to walk a long while to the next hotel and then wait 15 minutes for another taxi. And I had to pay!
Luckily everyone waited for me, or maybe because it was on my credit card they had to (sorry!) either way it was a fabulous and filling affair.

Due to the length of the tea I missed the US Tea Growers Meeting :( Does anyone have notes from it?

Following that I went home and poured over vendor handouts to see which I could eliminate, which I needed samples from, and which I needed more information from.
Then there was sleep.
