Thanks for the post.
You are correct -- my secret identity has been revealed! I not only maintain this message board, but also the Editor-in-Chief of the Pulitzer-prize winning TeaMuse (and, of late, the primary contributor).
I've recently decided not to include the detailed tearoom reviews as a regular part of TeaMuse (unfortunately, it proved to be relatively unpopular).
But I will gladly consider publishing any featured articles you'd be interested in contributing. The guidelines are simple: make it new (nothing that we've previously covered, or at least a different angle), interesting, and between 750 and 1000 words. You can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your best tea musings.
As for my education, I voraciously read just about everything could get my hands on before I settled down in the tea world (even once read a book about COFFEE by mistake).
