Back on the Tea Blogging Wagon

Back on the Tea Blogging Wagon

I’ll admit it, I haven’t blogged in a while. I’ve been happily sipping tea every single day, but the muse hasn’t struck me to lift a finger and start typing in a while. I’ve been slow in writing the latest about about my tea adventures. However, I’ve been very thankful for this blog and its role in helping me develop my palate and taste for tea.

I recently asked myself: What is it about tea blogging? Why do I bother, and why does it inspire me?

The last few months have been a fantastic trek through the tea fields of Thailand, the subtle fragrances of oolong, and some great conversations with other tea lovers.

Tea writing is just inspiring.

One of the things that inspires me about writing about tea is that it captures the quiet moments, and also gives me some great opportunities to get better at photography.

I’ve been really glad that I’ve maintained this blog since August. I’ve even recently become a proud member of the Association of Tea Bloggers.

I’m also reminded by how fun and amazing the tea community is. I’m always impressed by the forums on Steepster, and love the friendliness of folks like Melissa over at Expanding Leaves who played a part in doing a Halloween welcome to the tea world. Last but not least, there are always many inspiring and fun tweets by fellow tea lovers.

Thinking back on all these great experiences gives me some fresh resolve. I’ll be back on the blogging wagon starting today because this is something I genuinely enjoy thanks to the community out there. 🙂

What inspires you to blog?

I’ll also leave you with an inspiring quote sent by one of my friends:

The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his reaction, his love and his religion. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him, he is always doing both.

— Lao Tzu
