Best Travel Writing - Blog by Bill Giebler Packing It looks like a dance floor, a 30-foot-square section of smooth wood among the rough planks that make up most of the flooring, all surrounded by giant locomotive-like drying machines. I’ve been waiting at the cool, dark packing station just inside the front door of the tea factory, and alternately in the warm April Sunday morning sun just outside, for my packing shift. Packing represents the final step handled here at the factory, completing my education in the processing of my favorite tea. At 4,600 feet above sea level in the Himalayan foothills of India’s Darjeeling region, I’m at the 150-year-old Makaibari tea factory perched on a slope just below the town of Kurseong. After an hour of waiting, four large full tins of finished tea from the sorting room—carried two-ladies-at-a-time—are dumped on the shiny floor, filling the air with the rich, dark vegetal scent of black tea leaves. Processing Tea is both art and science. I wilted. Romance, too. We kissed.

The Charleston Farmers Market sets up every Saturday downtown in Marion Square until December 19, just two days before the first day of winter. That’s about a month away, and the harvest from the surrounding sea islands — Johns, Wadmalaw, James, Edisto — goes on. It may even be fair to say (especially if you like greens) that the variety is as good or better now than it’s been all year. The extent of the local farm bounty was one of the most fun discoveries I had after moving to Charleston a couple of years ago. Even though I’ve been cooking with greens from my raised beds out here on Sullivan’s for weeks now, I’ll stil be able to get fresh local produce for a while, if not all year round. By this time last year in the lowcountry we had dipped into the low 40’s just a few nights despite near freezing temperatures upstate, and even then summer crops like tomatoes, melons, okra, peas and peanuts still look great.
