A journal of tea, antiques and the myriad things between them
I love working at The Tea Gallery with my teachers, Michael and Winnie. I get to drink tea by their side while being surrounded by beautiful furniture and Chinese antiquities. Working is learning as a cup of tea leads to a deeper look at older tea traditions or Song Dynasty ceramics. Every day is different and there's always something old and exquisite to examine. Our little tea oasis in Manhattan also attracts other tea enthusiasts; some who like to bring their own Yixing tea heirlooms for us to admire. I feel fortunate to be surrounded by such good company. Having been the recipient of so much generosity, it's only fair that I share with others the good things that have been passed on to me.
