The Northwest Tea Festival is this weekend at Seattle Center

October 04, 2012


puer at the Northwest Tea FestivalThis weekend tea people from all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond will gather at Seattle Center for the 5th annual Northwest Tea Festival. The festival has gotten larger and better each year, and I am confident that this year will be one you will not want to miss.

Unlike many of the large scale tea events held across the country, the Northwest Tea Festival is consumer focused, rather than a trade show for the tea industry. There are many vendors on hand with a wide range of teas and tea-related items, and many opportunities to taste and experience new teas.

Throughout the two days of the festival attendees will find a broad range of events and activities, from educational workshops, talks, and demonstrations to limited seating tea tastings. I will be presenting two of these tastings on Sunday: “Caked Black Teas” at 10:30am, and “African White Teas” at 11:00am.

Here are a few specific recommendations for what to do while you’re there:

An American Pursuit of Puer Tea,” Saturday from 3:00pm – 4:00pm, presented by Jeffrey McIntosh

The Art of Tea,” Saturday from 3:30pm – 4:30pm, presented by Guitian “Becky” Li

Hei Cha – Chinese Dark Teas (Complete Survey),” Sunday from 11:30am – 12:30pm, presented by Charles & Laurie Dawson

Tea Chemistry – Reactions in Leaf and Cup,” Sunday from 12:30pm – 1:30pm, presented by Michael Coffey

Tea 101,” Sunday from 12:30pm – 1:30pm, presented by Brett Boynton

Andrea Bang

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.

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).
