Tea and Coffee Fest NYC 4/27-oh, and I met Chris Cason :D

by xine » Apr 30th 07 7:40 pm

So, Tea and Coffee Fest was awesome! I think it was a great first show, for me, because it was directed for the public, and not too many bigwig industry people for me to make a fool of myself in front of :)

But anyhoo, I will be writing about my experience for May's Tea Muse, but I leave you with me and Chris Cason (!!!) who I got to meet on Saturday. I know a couple of you were chatters when he was around, and he is an amazing guy- very energetic, full of information, and just an awesome, down-to-earth guy. Who KNOWS his tea. !!!

That's awesome! I wish I could have gone. Good to hear that Chris is still in the tea industry, I joined the forum at the end of his time here at adagio. Can't wait to read tea muse!

Your avatar makes you look like you are African American or mixed but you look Asian in that picture. Odd.

Hmmm, that's quite interesting. My avatar is a pic taken of me, but in sepia, maybe that's why? Anyhoo, I am quite Asian (Filipina, to be exact).

What a fun pic. :) Really enjoyed Chris when he was here. I like to check out his new place/web-site now and then, looks like a great place. Nice to see that success has not affected his "down to earth" personality.

Xine - nice work on the article in May Tea Muse. Hope you are enjoying the new job.
