A Cup of Zen: Me!

September 03, 2014


A Cup of Zen is a new series I have begun on my blog. The following is The Cup of Life’s first post for the series featuring myself, the writer.  For more information and to be featured, please visit its page.
I’m a tea blogger, as most of you are aware by now, and a marketing consultant. I got into this field because of my love for design and creative writing and of course, tea. When you’re not finding me drinking tea or blogging, I’m usually in awe as I stroll through crystal shops, spending time with my family, and trying to think of more ways to infuse tea into my recipes and every day life.
Tea joins me in all my zen moments because I find tea to be zen itself.  However, one moment that I remember fondly is the one pictured above and is used for this series. About a month after my boyfriend moved into his first house we started to think of a good area in his yard for a zen spot/garden. I rolled out his yoga mat in a paved spot under trees with a cup of white tea and my new book Tea Wisdom. I read a few random tea quotes and quips from the book and we began to do some yoga sequences together breaking every now and then for sips of teas and another quote. I felt at peace and rejuvenated for the rest of the day all while creating a deeper connection with my boyfriend. I was really grateful for the gorgeous weather and the area we agreed on as our own special spot for more zen moments like this one.

Where to find me… 

*You’re turn! Submit your #ACupofZen tea moment to me for a chance to be featured just like this. I promise that it’s fun

Boutique Pu’erh. How Much of a Story Does the Top End of the Western Boutique Pu’erh Market Tell?

September 21, 2019 0 Comments

If you follow what gets said about prices each year, you would end up with the impression that the average price of tea has gone up. But more specifically the price at the most sought after regions (say Lao Banzhang, Bingdao) have gone completely through the roof. A lot of this narrative is anecdotal. Tales of rich Chinese buying up all the top-end product from X area. Part of it can also be seen when someone in the Sinosphere posts the maocha prices per location. These lists come with all sorts of contextual caveats, but the trend seems real. I don’t see any red flags to really doubt this storyline, but I was curious if it’d show up by looking at some of the data of prices on production by western facing vendors.
