I was also thrilled to reconnect with some of the people who jump started my deep dive into tea. James Norwood Pratt is a tea educator, speaker, writer and sommelier. He has a palpable passion for tea and for sharing the joy of it. We got to catch up after one of his classes and you can watch the interview below to learn how the tea revolution is spreading across the US.
There were some familiar vendors from previous years, like Waterfall and Nepal Tea, and numerous ones I had not seen before. I was introduced to some new products and will share the experience with you as I work through my tea haul. Let me know if there is a particular product you are curious about.
Time to put the kettle on. Yeah, it's August in SoCal , but my love for tea transcends sweat. Cheers!
