Day trip to Baltimore
Apr 12, 2011 | Written by Anupa Mueller
I was asked to speak at the Mid-Atlantic Tea Business Association quarterly meeting at Baltimore yesterday. It was held at a charming Tea Room in a historic Stone Mansion in the heart of Baltimore called Tea by Julia Faye. She hasn't had it very long but has done a wonderful job with it. You could see her creativity in every corner. Just look at her table arrangement here with the stunning backdrop. It was a gorgeous day in the low 80's. I taught a class on How to Conduct a Successful Tea Tasting to about 20 members - Tea Room Owners, Tea Educators and Tea Enthusiasts. Following my seminar, I was fortunate to attend Kirsten Kristensen's talk on the gong-fu style of enjoying tea with a high quality Jade Pouchong from Taiwan - one of the all-time great lightly oxidized Oolongs. It was fascinating and I may even try to replicate it in some form for our own customers. Thanks for inviting me. It was a great opportunity to meet so many knowledgeable and thriving women entrepreneurs.
