Sharing My Passion

What I love doing - talking about (and drinking) tea!

On Sunday, I had the privilege of sharing tea information and stories with guests of the Tea's Me tearoom in Hillsboro, OR.  Such a fun afternoon!  The biggest compliment was when one kind woman said, "I loved hearing you talk about your passion."  Yes,  tea is my passion!

Special thanks to the kind attendee who took some of these photos for me!

Then pivoting into yesterday, my work team joined me at the Japanese Garden for a team building event.  We enjoyed a garden tour and my sensei from Issoan Tea School provided a demonstration tea ceremony.  We then served each guest a handmade sweet and a bowl of tea.  I think my team had a fun time.

Can you guess which one is me?  ;-)

Two really fun-filled and diverse tea days!

I'm guessing you are the one in kimono!

Oh I love them both, but the one of sharing with your work team in your kimono is just so special. They won't forget that for a long time.
