A Cup of Tea and Conversation...Ahhhh

Over the years one of the great pleasures for me is conversation over a wonderful pot of Darjeeling Tea made in my Tetsubin tea pot. I switched from coffee to tea exclusively about four years ago and I have never regretted it. I buy my tea in bulk and even go to the effort to weigh out just the right amount of tea leaves for every cup of tea making sure that every time a brew a pot of tea it is the perfect pot of tea. I simply love tea and am happy to brew up a pot any time someone comes over for conversation. I cannot imagine a better way to have a conversation with someone that I care about.

And of course reading a book with a cup of tea is a wonderful way to unwind and enjoy life. It is for this reason that I decided to start my own online business, a tea business for fine Indian teas and gifts for friends, family, and clients. As I do work full time and love my job, and am about to start my PhD in Human and Organizational Systems at Fielding Graduate University, I simply do not have time to take orders and do fulfillment and bookkeeping, so I joined an established company as an affiliate. I hope that this works for me and I hope that all of my friends and family visit Tea Reading Room to try some of my fine Indian teas and gifts. Just maybe I can encourage people to sit down with a beautiful cup of tea and have conversations that can change our world or just a little slice of it.

What a great combo, immersion in OD systems work at Fielding and a tea on-line business. Ever been to Chicago to the Russian Tea Time restaurant? Blackberry deep rich smoky tea. My fav is Yerba Mate' - La Hoja, a herbal tradition in Latin American countries. Will be back, as I'm transitioning into consulting work full time as an external. --dnrevel on twitter

I have not thought about Yerba Mate for years. What a blast from the past. Thank you for the note and I am going to have to reintroduce my taste buds. I have not been to the Russian Tea Time restaurant. I will certainly visit when back in Chicago. Have a wonderful week.

A good cup of tea really is the back bone of the UK society. I totally agree that there is no better way toi conduct a conversation over a fine tea.

It helps to establish a relaxed enviroment and allows the subject to talk easy and in a relaxed manner.

Keep up the good work!
