New Tea Mag - Online and Free

Check out the inagural version of The Leaf online tea magazine. There are some very interesting articles and thoght-provoking ideas in the first issue. The magazine seems to be coming from the perspective of Chinese teas, as described in this introduction in the About section:

"As devoted teawayfarers of many years, we have passed through the labyrinth of information available in English. There truly is a bewildering array of often-conflicting viewpoints on any given issue, and without the ability to speak and/or read Chinese development comes slowly. In fact, for us personally it wasn’t until we made the move to Asia and began to improve our Chinese skills that we really were able to steep ourselves in Cha Dao. Fortunately, the world is changing. We hope to be a part of the future of tea—a future where English speakers can find access to as much unbiased, pure-hearted information as Chinese speakers can.

We believe that the future of periodicals is a digital one. More environmentally-friendly, such electronic publications as this preserve paper and provide instant access to information."

If you check out the magazine, let me know what you think!
