I have just had this blog over a year. As I spent some time recently re-reading past entries and taking into account all that has happened in 2005, it was exciting to see a marked progress. I really was a complete newbie to tea in January 2005. I knew I liked mixing herbals and that loose tea was infinitely more desirable than teabags....since then I have upgraded my teawares, filled out the tea shelf, studied herbalism, started a Yahoo group, subscribed to a tea trade magazine, I have invited people to tea, encouraged people to trade tea -- I have brewed mad pots of tea.
Through this blog I have chatted with people from across the country and each encounter has been enriching. I am still excited about the prospect of bonding with someone I've never met over something as simple as tea, thanks to the web.
So, I want to thank everyone who's stopped by to read and share and email me. There will be more to read...much more! Good things are brewing....new things for the new year.
