Yesterday, 74% of responders indicatated possession of at least one tea book!!! It was interesting hearing about all the different tea books TeaChatters have. You may still vote/post on yesterday's topic of TeaBooks.
Welcome to what is my favorite day for TeaDays, Friday. I hope we can do some serious tea drinking today. Be sure to visit throughout your day and share what is in your cup. Of course, if you need to you can reflect back on your TeaDay. Make sure while you are here to see what other TeaChatters are sipping as well!
Today's TeaPoll and discussion topic is about "other people" on TeaChat who have influenced you in a positive way or mentored you on your TeaJourney. Pay homage to those who have helped you along the way. You do not have to mention names if that makes you feel uncomfortable...perhaps instead share how this person has helped you. Don't be shy!
I am looking forward to sharing Friday with all of you...have a great TeaDay...
I had to answer "No" to a specific person, but I will say that I have learned a *ton* just surfing around the forums.
Irish Breakfast, as always, this morning. And I read the suggestions of milk in it and all I can say is ... blech! But, hey, I'm a southern girl and the idea of milk in my tea is a complete anathema to me.
Definitely, yes. As a whole, the enthusiasm, friendliness, and helpfulness of those in the teachat community has been very influential in my tea journey. I've also made a couple of friends with whom I am enjoying regular correspondence with.
Of course I've been mentored! And I can name names! I owe a huge thank you to Chip, Sal, Space, Hop, Scruff, EO, Andy, Wes, Jamie, and Phyll (wherever he is). They've all influenced the teas I drink and the ways I've learned to brew...and lately they've been denting my bank account through their influence in teaware! Wonderful friends, all.
So many people have been helpful, held my hand, answered my questions, offered advice and sent teas! LavenderPekoe, Mary, Chip, Victoria, hop_goblin, scruffmcgruff, ABx are just a few names. I am sure there were more and there will be more in future. Thank you all!
Irish Breakfast in my cup, just about finished and getting ready for a second steep.
Chip sensei led me down the path to Japanese tea. I didn't like it at first, but with his help I learned to brew it properly and now that's almost all I drink
Hop, my pu guru has been most kind.
Hop, Scruff, Mary, EO, and Marshal were the ones who got me started blogging. When I joined TeaChat a year ago, they were doing it and it looked like fun. It has been something that's brought me a lot of joy. Thanks guys.
