the last of that sweet fragrance
This is the last of it. They are precious to me, these flowers we found in a beautiful town of 周庄, in a tiny shop nestled in a canal-facing building. A single bud with your green tea, which unravels the most amazing fragrance. I've got no idea what they're called, how they're grown, how they're processed . . . amazing how you go to a little watertown an hour away from Shanghai and it's like you're in another country. Little mysteries, in every alley.
