Happy Chinese New Year
Happy Chinese New Year 2019.
Tomorrow is Chinese New Year. This will be the year of the pig. Pigs were pretty important in the olden days where pigs serve as a source of income and food for the Chinese communities. The Chinese word, Jia, for home is 家 is actually a pictorial of a pig in a home. The year of the pig symbolises great abundance and happiness. If you are born in the year of the pig, you are a happy and possibly rich person.
Looking back, there had been recently many economic uncertainties - Brexit and US/Sino trade disputes are some the highlights or main causes of these uncertainties in the world today. However, this bodes well for us, the Chinese tea drinkers. I do not see any significant price increases in the Chinese tea market. There is a also a possibility of 'big time' collectors selling their tea to generate cash in these wild economic times. I will be making my Guangzhou trip after April this year and I should get a clearer picture of the tea prices In China when I am there.
Have a Happy Chinese New Year. I wish all my readers happiness and good health.
