Dianna H.


Founder, Santa Barbara Tea and STI Certified Tea Specialist


Santa Barbara, CA

Organizer since:

September 29, 2016

What is your favorite tea?

Pu'erh, a fermented tea that improves with age under the right conditions, like a fine wine. It is produced primarily in Yunnan, China. They call it "Black Tea" in China. They call Lipton-type tea "Red Tea" in China.

How can the group serve your needs?

The group can serve my needs by helping me build a community of knowledgable tea lovers in California. I want the members of this group to be able to recognize good quality tea and good quality tea service. I want more premium tea in California.

Do you want to help organize events?

Certainly! I started this group as well as 2011 Tea Appreciation Day. See my blog on it at Sign up for Tea Appreciation Day at


My passion is community-building through tea. I write for the tea blog. I am an STI Certified Tea Specialist and I am now in STI Level 4 (The Technology of Tea). I founded 2011 Tea Appreciation Day at­ppreciation-Day.
