A Year In Tea: 2012

I can hardly believe that another year has come and gone. 2012 was a continuation of my amazing journey with the leaf. Tea for Me Please celebrated four years of tea and fun. I filmed my first video blog and published my first article in an online magazine. I also wrote a guest blog for Tearroir and made the leap to launching an email newsletter. World Tea East and the New York Coffee and Tea Festival were both highlights. Tea even helped me to get through Hurricane Sandy. Out of curiosity I took a count and I reviewed a grand total of 151 teas in 2012. The blog was visited by nearly 6,900 visitors from 108 different counties. Thank you all for reading what I have to say about tea! It really means the world to me.

Every year around this time, I try to recognize all of the tea companies who have generously shared their products with me and the world. You keep this blog ticking!
