A Year In Tea: 2013

2013 has been a crazy whirlwind of a tea filled year for me. My New Year’s resolution was to post twice daily, Monday through Friday. With the exception of a few days in January I accomplished that goal. It was challenging and stressful at times but also a ton of fun. I launched my podcast, published an article in TeaMuse and attended the grand opening of Teavana’s new tea bar. October was the five year anniversary of the launch of this blog. Time flies when you are having fun! It’s been a very social tea year as well since I’ve started holding monthly video meetings with my friends and attending monthly Steepster meetups. Thank you all for following my journey and sharing your experiences with me!

Connecting with my readers has always been the best part of having this blog. I reviewed 293 teas this year and posted a total of 436 blog posts. The blog was visited by just over 17,000 unique visitors from 121 different countries.

As always, this time of year I send a big thank you to all of the tea companies whose generosity keep +Tea for Me Please running.
