My Blog posts cover a variety of subjects. They provide views, information and opinions about tea and the tea business, the health benefits of tea, gadgets and recipes, but they also incorporate travel stories and anecdotes—some about tea and some about other matters. Posts titled Theme Days, provide photographs of subjects I have taken from all over the world and covers subjects such as: Animals; Architecture; Churches/Mosques/Temples; Flowers/Plants; Landscapes; People; Quaint Objects; and Waterfalls.
I created this site to mainly share information about making and enjoying tea.
Most of what I write is informational – I research subjects extensively to find good information to simply spread some knowledge around about tea, tea makers, tea health benefits and so on.
If you have a burning desire to hear about a topic pertaining to tea, by all means send me your suggestions through the contact page.
