Its getting cold again, that means its been about another year since I first stumbled down the rabbit hole. While I have fond memories of drinking tea going back at least 10 years if not more, and I started to wise up to how amazing tea could be 6 years ago with my first regular purchases of loose leaf tea, I did not really hit the rabbit hole until I started this blog.
So thinking back the last 4 years, I have amassed a large collection of teaware, which I am very fond of, and is often a talking point with visitors to my place. More amazingly is I still have at least 60% if not 75% of all the puerh I have ever bought, even though I have not bought puerh in the past 2 years ( besides a few small aged puerh samples), despite a few regular pushes to try and work on my puerh collection. The falling down the rabbit hole even lead me to start pottery classes, in hopes that I could eventually make some useful pieces to use with guests.
What I still can not believe is how popular this blog has become, and for that I owe my thanks to all of you, who are regular viewers of this blog. It has been a little rough at times, more so in these past 2 years, when Graduate studies and teaching can kill just about all free time, and push tea time to the fringes of the day, often enjoyed while working on some other task that needs to get done.
I almost wish I kept very detailed notes, on how many different teas that I have tried in these past 4 years even. I am willing to bet it far exceeds the 300 posts. What I can not possibly fathom would be how many tea sessions I have had these past 4 years. I would be willing to bet it is rather close to if not over 1,500 sessions, as I have no problem believing I averaged a little over 1 tea session a day since I started this blog.
