This blog has been going for some time now, so I want to highlight a few of the posts to give you an idea of what sorts of things you'll find there:
- Cold-Brewing Darjeeling First Flush for Iced Tea
- More Focus on Tea Producing Regions, and Turkey in Particular
- Whole Leaf Tea, Immaculate Leaf, and Tea Companies Without Websites
Why yet another new tea blog?
After working on Teacology for some time, where I was putting a lot more effort and energy into posts, and thus updating much less frequently and much less regularly, I realized that I wanted an additional outlet for more casual writings about tea like I used to share on this blog. I occasionally have been posting about tea on my personal Tumblr, but it's not the same.
Why Tea Trade?
Tea Trade is a blogging community designed by and for tea lovers, and it has an active community of tea bloggers. It seemed a logical place for a casual tea-related blog, one oriented a little more towards tea industry insiders and hobbyists, whereas Wordpress seemed better suited to reaching a more general audience.
Three (four?!?) tea blogs now: uh oh, am I obsessed?
Yes, I know it is absurd, I now have three tea blogs, four if you count RateTea's Tumblr. But hey, it makes sense to me? Different blogging platforms have different strengths and I think are good for different things.
I hope you enjoy this new blog!
