Next Month in Seattle!

There are only a few days left until the Northwest Tea Festival at Seattle Center. I'll be there both days (October 2nd and 3rd) helping out in the tea tasting booths. There will be many wonderful speakers and tea tasting opportunities so I really hope to see you there!

I'm also excited for my mentor Jason Chen, who will be at the Northwest Tea Festival selling and signing his new book: "A Tea Lover's Diary" which contains lots of beautiful, original photography along with great information about Tie Kuan Yin and Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong production!

In other news... my "Third (almost) Annual Black Dragon Tea Bar Chinese Tea Appreciation Party" (I know that is quite a mouthful) will take place at Seward Park's picnic shelter #2 from 2:00 to 4:30 PM on Sunday, October 17th. The theme is "Tea and Nature" and will include three wonderful teas, vegan treats, and a few games with prizes. This party costs $10 per guest and still has some space available so please email me ( if you wish to RSVP.

Here are links to posts about my 2007 "Tea and Music" and my 2008 "Tea in the Garden" events.

How about a review of the book?

It is a short read mainly because the book is full of beautiful photos. Most of the text and photo captions are endearing and/or informative, but a few are a little bit corny or included to promote Mr. Chen's own products. I feel like most people will learn quite a bit about these two famous Chinese teas while reading this book.
