2. Tell me about your blog. What/who inspired you to create a blog dedicated to tea? and are there any bigger plans in the future for it?
5. If there was one place in this world you could travel to experience their tea culture, where would it be?
This is such a hard question! There are so many places I’d like to go! One of my favorite types of tea is from Yunnan, so I’ll say I’d like to visit plantations there, and learn how the various teas are processed. I’d also love to learn more about Gong Fu tea from masters in China. I have so much to learn, and there are so many places to see! I would also love to learn more about yixing teaware, and how it is made.
6. What does tea mean to you?
Tea is a time for me to relax and take a step back from my day. I work full time and have two children, so things get quite hectic. My morning tea wakes my body and mind, but also gives me a moment to reflect before diving into the day. My afternoon cups also give me a change to pause, and recharge. Tea is a huge part of my life, and when I discovered tea blogs I realized that it is a way to meet new people, and learn new things. It has given me the opportunity to express myself through the blog, and broaden my palate. I love meeting new people through tea adventures. It is a special feeling to meet fellow tea drinkers and share our experiences.
7. Any last words you would like to say about your life and tea?
Before I started the blog, I never realized how important tea was to my life. It helps my body and mind, but also has introduced me to new people and cultures. No matter how long you’ve been drinking tea, there is a new tea adventure to be had every day!
As someone that has done a fair amount of content on tea, I have a lot of mixed thoughts on the way information is passed. With tea reviews or discussing a specific tea I have struggled with the question: how to talk about an individual tea or tea in general in an interesting or useful way.. Whether you like or dislike TeaDB episodes largely depends on whether you enjoy watching two particular people drink and binter. This is fine enough and it is certainly fun for Denny & I to create, but I’ll also agree with the sentiment that it’s not necessarily the most substantive way to review a tea in depth. There’s some signal but there’s also a lot of noise. Writing about a specific tea also isn’t easy and I think is actually very difficult to execute in a way that is actually consistently interesting or useful for people. Most people just want to know if you liked or didn’t like a specific tea. Making something that piques interest beyond that is a challenge and even if you don’t like them a place like Mei Leaf has succeeded in creating content that really does engage their viewers. You also have to consider that the majority of people have not had the tea or are even unfamiliar with the basic taste profile (i.e. Denny & I describing a traditionally stored pu’erh, when the audience has never had one).. Here are some phrases I dislike and hear frequently enough that I find them unhelpful and sometimes even counter-productive.
