Norpel in our tasting room yesterday.

An ex Buddhist monk and fellow tea lover, Norpel is off to china in the next couple of weeks to spend about 6 months living with the tea growers and pickers in the Yunnan province. He's been kind enough to offer to make up some Pu Erh Suki tea cakes using wild picked tea. They're blocks of compressed tea. Not available until next year but I tried this years yesterday and they are a delight that's worth the wait.

He’s been booked for the main stage of The Big Chill, Glastonbury, The Royal Opera House and La Scala and choreographed movement for Harry Potter.

Now you can get to see why Wayne McGregor is acclaimed as one of the world’s most exciting choreographers – and why the Royal Ballet has hired him as their first Resident Choreographer in 16 years - as he unleashes 10 dancers, beats and strings in his new show, Entity.

An hour-long breathtaking trip through a soundscape created by Coldplay and Massive Attack collaborator Jon Hopkins, and award-winning composer Joby Talbot (The Divine Comedy), Entity is a staggering blend of athletic bodies, lights, technology and film which confirms McGregor’s place at the cutting edge of contemporary culture. Technically astonishing, emotionally uncompromising and hard-hitting, McGregor’s work breaks boundaries and defies categorisation.
