Let's visit different places around town that carry a good selection of teas. I'll plan something every month (and then a few last-minute meetup's thrown in for fun!). There are several tea shops that have superb teas, but also a few restaurants that I don't want to miss out on. If you are a new to tea or have had a love for tea for a while, hopefully we can find a happy balance for everyone.

I am hoping to get some of the shop owners to be able to tell us more about the teas they serve and a bit about the history of the tea and the estates they come from. This may not be possible at every location, but I'll try my best. If you know the owner of a shop, please let me know. My friends think my love of tea is crazy. If this describes you, then you'd fit right in! We can all geek out together! Find out more about me at @sumina. And yes, the picture in the profile is a just a sampling of the tea selection I keep at work. :)
