I’ve been fortunate to have had several—related—careers in my life.
I began in scientific research labs, then moved to editing and publishing scholarly monographs, all the while drinking tea. Eventually my love of tea and my love of research collided and here I am, working at TeaHaus in Ann Arbor, Michigan, while delving into all things tea!
And so, my research- and science-based background along with Lisa’s expertise as European-trained tea sommelier (and founder/owner of TeaHaus and Eat More Tea) will inform our odyssey together.
And because it’s always more than tea, I hope that you too will have fun discovering how this one plant has changed—and continues to impact—our world.
Unless otherwise indicated, I have taken all photos in this blog.
My current favorite post, which I think sums up the importance of tea and ritual in today’s world, is Grief, Tea, and the Disruption of Ritual.
