We started out right with a dim sum lunch in the International District. We took our own pu-erh tea for the pot and enjoyed many rounds of greens, dumplings, eggplant, shrimp, green beans with black bean sauce, and my favorite - the egg tarts.
Then off to New Century for a tasting with Grace. New Century has a nice selection of Chinese-style teas, teacups, pots and serving vessels, gaiwan, tea trays and all the fun stuff that comes along with it.

A really great day! Tomorrow begins the conference. If anyone is interested, our group will be doing a Wu-Wo session at 1:30 pm on Saturday (10/6). Please come and join us! We have space for 10 brewers and many observers. No charge - just come and brew. No experience necessary.
