This weekend I visited my father in Houston to celebrate his retirement from Shell Oil after 34 years. One of the many ways his job has impacted his life is it introduced him to tea, due to having in international workforce. My father shared two teas that coworkers had given to him after visiting their families in China.
We also visited the tea house The Path of Tea. I was a little disapppointed by the selection. It seemed that they focused more on providing organic teas, mainly ones flavored or with added herbs, than with even basic "pure" tea. The atmosphere is peaceful and it is a great place if you're interested on learning more about tea or testing the waters. We did pick up their Dragonwell and a black currant tea for later.
When I got home I had package waiting for me from What-Cha! I've heard rave reviews about their tea, and I really liked the selection on their website. Be prepared for reviews on these teas soon!
