The People of Tea

Couldn't help posting this pretty purple teapot for those that love purple.

This teapot intrigued me and so do the little boy tea pets.

I didn't get everyone's names here, sorry!
The woman holding the red mug is Lorna Reeves, Editor of Tea Time Magazine.
The man in the middle is James Norwood Pratt, who has written several tea books
and quite the tea celebrity.
The couple on the right were representing Chado Tea.
Does anyone know who the woman in purple is?

Brett Boynton of Phoenix Tea as he was sharing two exquisite Darjeeling teas in a tasting.

I asked James Norwood Pratt if I could take his picture
and this was what he wanted me to take, kissing his wife, Valerie.

Becky Li talking about the strength of the Hunan Dark Tea.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching Becky just make the tea for us in this tasting.
She is so full of grace.

Always learning more about tea, the NW Tea Festival was a delight.

Oh, Marilyn, it looks like the most wonderful time! And I DO love that purple teapot!

Hello Marilyn
I'm sure you came home with some goodies that you'll show us later!

They're both interesting tea pots - I love my old china one though.
Does the one with the critter on the lid really get used? It's not my cup of tea but we're all different - thank goodness!

Have a happy weekend (Friday here already) and thank you so much for your kind words!

I love the purple teapot! And what an amazing experience for you to be part of the tea conference. I'm sure it was a lot of fun.
