    Viva Las Vegas! World Tea Expo 2016

    I’m super excited to be making my third trip to +World Tea Expo this year. 2016 will different for a few different reasons. The show has been held in Long Beach, California for the last two years. Although I enjoyed getting a few days in California, it’s excited to travel to somewhere new. Las Vegas should make for a very interesting time. As always, I’ll be sure to report everything back here once I return home. My non-tea drinking boyfriend is joining me this year. I’m excited to introduce him to my tea friends from around the country (and world). I don’t think Jason quite knows what he’s in for though. Maybe this is just…

    Tea Journey: Exactly What the Tea World Has Been Waiting For

    I’ve been seriously studying tea for many years now and one of my biggest frustrations has been the lack of quality information in the west.

    Tea Blogger’s Choice Awards 2012

    You may recall from my “Favorite Tea” post that the Association of Tea Bloggers would be presenting the 1st Annual Tea Blogger’s Choice Awards. The results are finally in! I believe that this award is really special because it was voted for democratically by the tea blogger community. My very talented boyfriend designed and donated the logo for the award. Did your favorite teas make the cut? Not all of mine did but I’ve certainly discovered a few that are on my wish list. In addition to this award, the ATB will be selecting “Best of Show” exhibitors at the upcoming Coffee and Tea Festival Atlantic City. It’s going to be a great event…
