Bill is in Sri Lanka!

Check back OFTEN! This blog will be updated over the next several weeks with more photos from Bill's trip!

TUNE IN FRIDAY, JULY 28, at 11:30 p.m. CST to FACEBOOK LIVE to see Bill lay the first brick of a new school that is being built at the Lumbini Tea Factory in Sri Lanka. The school is for the children of the workers at the tea garden. Bill is honored to be a part of the ground breaking ceremony.

Bill is traveling around Sri Lanka with his family for a couple weeks! He is spending 4 days  at the Lumbini Tea Factory, attending the Colombo International Tea Convention to meet with tea growers and find sources for new Ceylon teas, and traveling to other tea areas in the country such as Nuwara Eliya, Kandy, and Dimbula.

Bill's daughter Maggy is going to be posting on social media about their adventures, so if you don't follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, now is the time!

Each morning, workers prepare for a day of plucking tea by receiving blessings at a Hindu shrine.

    I visited Sri Lanka a few years ago and loved it. Many high points including staying at the Norwood Bungalow, part of the Ceylon Tea Trails, and visiting the Brief Garden by Bevis Bawa. It’s a beautiful country w/an interesting history and a lot of tea!
