About Me

My photo
I embarked on my tea journey when I studied abroad in China in 2008 and traveled around Taiwan that summer. I'm here to share my experiences and offer my own opinion, advice, and comments on tea.

As some of you may know, I've been in the Peace Corps application process for almost a year now, but I've finally been invited to serve in Azerbaijan, teaching English. I know this isn't tea-related but it's pretty big news. Also, this is an opportunity for people to send me tea! (just kidding, but not really). I'm planning on bringing some tea, but not a lot since I have to travel light. Probably just the basic balled-up oolong, since wiry type tea takes up more space and is more prone to breakage. This may also mean that I won't be updating this anymore after I leave, since it'd just be me drinking the same kind of tea over and over again.

For those who wish, you can follow my adventures in Azerbaijan over at my other blog here

Glad you're finally officially in, but sad you're leaving here... I guess we'll have to double up on LATA tastings before you leave. Don't worry - if you can get mail, we'll manage to send you some care packages.

Good luck dude! Are you taking any teaware with you? It'd be pretty cool to take one zisha pot or something and use it for every single tea you brew while you're over there just to see what happens. At least you'll be saving money over there!
