Four Years of Tea and Fun

Tea for Me Please came into being exactly four years ago today! My first post was made pretty early in my love affair with tea. I had just purchased my first yixing (which is still my favorite) and I was a staff tea reviewer for To date I’ve written just over 500 posts. That’s a lot of tea! My palate and tastes have definitely evolved since then. I was very into flowering and flavored teas. I suppose those are gateway drugs for many of us.

Aside from all of the amazing tea that I have tried over the years, the most important thing about this blog has always been the people. Whether it’s emails from readers, connecting on twitter or sharing a pot of tea in person; this blog has given me the opportunity to meet some of the most wonderful people I have ever come across. That has meant more to me than I could probably ever find the words for. There are too many to name but you’ve all helped me learn and grow, both as a person and a lover of tea. I’m not sure where this blog or tea will take me in the future but I’m grateful for everything that I’ve experienced along the journey so far.

Just for laughs, these are my first two logos. My complete lack of artistic ability is pretty apparent but I think the current one is an improvement 🙂
