Teas Around the World Tour!


I am very excited to be able to say I am planning a 16-day tour of 16 teas and tea ceremonies from around the world (inspired by and intending to buy from THIS page).  I will buy the teas and supplies, and on the specified day, write a post about the preparation and history of the honorary tea for that day. You can visit the tour page HERE :: keep checking back in as the tour will be updated as we try new teas and ceremonies I am open to suggestions for adding more teas or rituals, but for now, here’s the tour’s itinerary:
