I love tea. I especially love pureh and food made with tea. I'm a Certified Tea Specialist (Specialty Tea Institute) and I organize the Los Angeles Tea and Long Beach Tea Meetup groups.

What types of foods do you enjoy most?

Vegetarian. Milk and eggs are okay. My favorite cuisines are Chinese, Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese and Italian.

What is your all-time favorite restaurant?

Oddly, a seafood restaurant in a ship moored off a pier in North Vancouver, BC. They made the best blanced veggies I've ever had. It included samphire. Lovely buttery cream sauce. Totally plain and exotic all at once.

What is one restaurant that you've been wanting to try?

Don't know one by name. Would love one that has gourmet vegan and veggie dishes, like Global Cuisine, if there's one around the area.

    Thanks, Dianna. Sorry I can't make the next meetup, my wife and I had already made plans to compete in the Karo syrup cooking contest at the SD County Fair that day.

    Thank you Dianna, I am so happy to have found Tyler at Mad Monk Tea. I'm hoping my daughter can attend tomorrow, she will be arriving in town tonight in time for the Grammy's. I hope I will get to see you there also one of these Monday's.

    Hi Dianna, Just got back from San Diego, and was sad to hear that Halcyon Tea has closed:(

    San Francisco Tea

    Hi Dianna, I tried to register for the event in SF on Oct 22 but when I click on the "TIX" link, the only events posted are from May and nothing for the current month. Any insights on other ways to register? Thanks.

    Welcome Dianna! It's great to have the organizer of other relevant Tea Meetup sites as a member here. I applaud your efforts to move the tea industry forward using MeetUp.

    Hi, Dianna. I'm alerting my fellow organizers to the Meetup dues strike to protest the "New Meetup" and its unnecessary and destructive changes. Please go here for more info: http://www.meetup.com/boards/thread/1...­­
