Go With Passion

2 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

It was a fall evening in 2008 that I decided to start a tea blog.  In retrospect I knew very little (still do in fact.) However I did have one thing, passion, passion to learn, passion to know, and passion to try. Honestly I had no clue...Show More Summary

Musing On Tea

3 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

 "Wine is sunlight held together by water."                                            -Galileo Galilei If that is true, then what would tea be?  I'd venture to guess it would be something along the lines of:  tea is life infused into water. Show More Summary

Tea with Dinner

3 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

I have to laugh how things can change.  I used to be a person who had tea when they were having tea, and ate when he was going to eat.  I almost never even had a small snack with my tea even though it can be fairly common. However with...Show More Summary

New Video Describing Balhyocha!

3 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

So lately I have been doing a lot of personal searching, and personal development and goal setting. One thing that didn't sit right was how far I drifted away from tea, and while the past few months it has been getting a foothold in my life again, I did not want the blog or the videos to go.

Why do you choose your your teaware?

3 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

I have run several small interesting experiments with my friends, namely when giving them a choice to use any cup I have to offer, who chooses which, and why did they choose that one?  Is there something about the shape, glaze, sizeShow More Summary

Tough Decisions, is it time for an end?

3 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

I sat down tonight, saying it has been too long since I last posted, I specifically carved out a solid stretch of time to work on a post.  Something I am not used to as my posts had before mostly been written on a whim, when the spirit hit. Show More Summary

Days that make us Remember

3 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

I am not going to lie, for a little while there I had started to forget what it is I actually like about tea, and why I spent so much time drinking it, and learning how to best prepare it.  I think if people spend enough time on anything eventually they will need to step back and reevaluate their situation.

Isn't it Ironic?

4 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

4 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

Sorry for the horrible word play in the title.   However I've been thinking a lot about where tea ranks on my list of priorities lately, and I am not exactly sure.  I view it as an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable diversion, and still enjoy it immensely. Show More Summary

The Spirit of Tea

4 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

Through over 5 years on my blog, many things have changed personally, some at least in part inspired by tea.  As tea drinkers we get a lot of questions on what tea is to us, or why we drink tea.  Honestly though through those 5 years...Show More Summary

Cold Brewed [Steeped] Tea

4 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

In passing with another tea person I know I had a brief although provocative conversation.  I mentioned that I was drinking some Cold Brewed Keemun I made for a party I hosted, and his initial reaction was that it was a waste of good tea. Show More Summary

Matcha Monday Morning Maddness

4 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

Well it is quarter after three in the morning, a time I find a little bit ironic, as 24 hours ago I had not yet gone to bed, and in those past 24 hours I've gotten maybe ten hours of sleep, a questionable four Saturday morning, and six with so much promise bringing me to this point in time right here.

Warming up with some Aged Sheng Puerh

4 years agoFood & Drink / Tea : The SipTip

First I needed to warm up from a bit over 6 mile, hour long run in the ever falling snow.  While it was an incredibly fun and miserable run at the same time, there is just something impressive about the glaciers that were forming on my eyebrows by the end of the run. Show More Summary
