My name is Scott and this is my blog, Scotttea. For almost two decades now I have been a “tea person” (茶人), making tea everyday, and practicing 功夫茶 (gong fu cha, literally “the skill and challenge of tea”), 茶の湯 (chanoyu, literally “water for tea”), and various other East Asian “tea ceremonies”. In addition to this, I have also been involved in the tea industry and have performed academic research on tea history and tea production.
This blog is a reflection of my exploration of tea, the people I meet in tea, and the travels I go on in pursuit of this beverage.
I regularly present and moderate at museums, universities, tea houses, cultural centers, etc. For speaking inquiries, feel free to reach out to scotttea888 (at) gmail.com.
