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!
The tea market and the industry have made it clear that transparency is the way of the future – but what is transparency? I have been building a culture of transparency in the agriculture supply chain since 2010. At first I was a lone ranger; but now I see almost … Continue reading
Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.
THE SECRET SALCE BEHIND FUND SELECTION
Two Types of Major College scholarships
Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).
The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
