New tea forum!

by Chip » Dec 11th, '17, 13:10

Dear friends,

We would like to announce the official launch of a new online tea community:

TeaForum.org

TeaForum.org was started by members of the TeaChat community, including longtime admin Chip, pedant, and Victoria. It can be viewed as a successor to that community.

The goal of the site is to create a premium discussion area with the hope that over time, it will develop into an extremely useful resource for people seeking in-depth information on tea. It is also our objective that the forum have a solid, transparent relationship with the community it serves.

We believe that traditional forums are optimized for in-depth discussion. Forums have site structure to organize topics in a useful way, and threads tend to persist longer which allows for interesting discussion to evolve. Also, unlike many Facebook groups, TeaForum.org is externally indexed by search engines like Google.

We dream that TeaForum.org will eventually become a valuable and easily searchable repository of tea knowledge.

Finally, our community is not backed by commercial interests and does not serve ads. The site exists solely to cultivate tea discussion, knowledge, and friendship.

We look forward to seeing you,
TeaForum.org founders

Just for clarification and transparency, teaforum.org is not in any way affiliated with TeaChat nor Adagio.

Hope to see you there.

We're always happy to see good teas discussed with verve and enthusiasm! We wish Chip, Pedant, and Victoria much success with the new forum. Please don't be strangers, and come back from time-to-time to interact with your old friends at TeaChat. We'll miss you.

Thank you , Michael. I will always be appreciative of the decade of free reign tea discussions on TeaChat and the support from you and the Adagio staff.

I won't be far away.

Good luck to you and yours.

Always my best,
Chip

So, just for clarification purposes, is TeaChat practically closing for new members and new posts? Is all this going to be an archive?

I mean, I know that closing TeaChat was in planning since 2011, but is it really happening now?... I'm just a bit confused by the situation...

I don't think so--some of us participate on both forums!

Just a few of the more active and knowledgeable users are moving to new territories.
