A Journey Through the World of Tea

Archive for January, 2011

Look Back on 2010..well sorta

Looking back at last year, tea became a even more prominent part of my life. But Tyros hasn’t been updated in quite some time, and that is alldue on my part. I let myself get busy and neglected it, and if there is one thing I have learned from tea, it is that you need to slow down some times to enjoy life.  So I would like to apologize for not updating regularly

It’s 2011, 2010 went by fast, and with new years brings new teas to review, and people to meet.

The following pictures are some of the tea treats that I have had the pleasure to part take in this past holiday season. I do apologizes at the quality of these pictures, my good camera has died on me.

This little lovely beauty is my first Yixing Clay Pot, (named it Gin) that I received from my Best friend Wes.

Along with the pot, Wes also got me this 2006 Pu-erh cake (above) and a 2009 cake (below). The 2006 cake has become the crown jewel of my teas because it was made the year I graduated from high school. I plan on taking my first sip of it come my twenty year reunion.

Last but not least this big bag of goodness is a custom blend specially for Tyros. Thanks to my friends over at Bourgea Tea for making this custom Blueberry white tea entitled “Blueberry Yum”. Keep your eyes out as I will get giving away some samples away sometime this week.

 

Over all this past year has been a good year for me and tea. Was able to cross off about 5 of the Lengendary Tea’s of China off my list, I met alot of awesome tea bloggers via twitters, blogs, and facebook, and got to take a look on how some of my favorite tea companies got started. So I raise a cup to 2011 and hope it will be another great year of tea.
