Role: Apostle

Room: Cha Miao

VIP Menu: Wenshan Baozhong, Tie Guan Yin, West Lake Longjing (Jipin grade), Aged Pu-erhs

Tea Accessory: My side pour, glass kettle.

Most Unforgettable Tea: One time in Taiwan, I was having lunch with a retired Feng Shui Master, Ching Guo, and his family. After lunch we sat down for tea where I was served my first taste of Wenshan Baozhong. It was like being baptized into the world of tea!

Favourite Tea Shop: I have been in so many tea shops in China and Taiwan. I don't know that I could pick a favorite. I think a tea shop should be judged by it's tea-master, rather than the teas they have available at any given time.

Tell Us About Yourself:

I'm a spiritually-minded guy who doesn't follow any particular path. I do relate to: Taoism, Zen Buddhism, and Hinduism. My name here, Apostle, was chosen because I see myself as still learning about tea, while not minding sharing what I have learned so far; "spreading the word" so to say.

The name of my room is also a spiritual reference. Cha Miao translates to, Tea Temple.
