Been a tad quiet around these parts, eh? Been swamped at work and have spent what little free time I have at home working on a few other projects. Life as usual should resume around here next week.

In the meantime, check out Chinese Tea World, a website maintained by Huan Ying. It’s an outstanding resource for information about Chinese tea (all sorts, from white to black to green) as well as the history, terminology, and methods of production surrounding each type of tea. Every time I click through a link and read a page, I realize there are another series of links underneath that page with a further explanation of terms. Particularly intriguing are the scans of a tea book from the early 1900s.

If you don’t know a thing about tea beyond Lipton, this is a great place to start and if you think you know everything there is to know, prove yourself wrong.
