Are you our tea friend?
- Do you like our style and approach to tea?
- Are you interested in our tea journey, and do you wish to know more about it?
- Would you like to be more closely associated with us, by giving feedback and opinion from time to time?
If your answers to the questions above are yes, you are truly a friend of Fresh Tea Stories. We have come up with a way to better connect with you: the Friends of Fresh Tea Stories Insiders Newsletter. You will also receive news from our sister website Exquisite Leaves, which is also completely owned and run by us.
There is no requirement to be a member of this inner circle. All we ask, is to be our friend 🙂 .
If you are not interested in all this inside stuff, you can simply subscribe to the regular newsletter, which will only give you major announcements.
Friendship in tea culture
In Chinese tea circles, a tea friend (茶友) is someone with whom you share the activity of drinking and appreciating tea.
The nature of the sharing does not really matter. It may be common drinking sessions, but it could also be all sorts of other things. If for you tea is a more solitary and meditative activity, it may be sharing experiences, swapping samples, etc. It may also be keeping in touch with someone involved in the world of tea (producer, merchant, teacher, …).
It would be our pleasure to have you among our tea friends!
