It is always so nice to have good friends to link us up with local community when we are on a business trip. This time, after World Tea East @ Philly, Josephine and I got invited by TAANJ and TAAGP with Grace Taiwan Church to visit Lawrenceville/NJ and having a Taiwan Tea Workshop on the 911 afternoon. This event is in celebration of Autumn Harvest, and we are lucky to enjoy so many beautiful flowers arrangements on display at the Church. Our hearty appreciation to Dr. Chanchi Lee to coordinate with Mr. Albert Tsai, Sheng-Chia Chang, Doris Liu and Rev Peter Chao. What a great bunch of tea lovers there to enjoy a wonderful afternoon with fine Taiwan teas.
We also got to meet with our good friend, Kirsten and her talented daughter Maj there. They have worked together to publish "The World of Tea - Focus on Taiwan" based on their 2009 TOST experience and good research works.
Besides working on the Focused Tasting: Taiwan Oolong, we got chance to walk around the show floor, which is absolutely not possible for us to do so during World Tea Expo. So excited to see many tea friends and also we got a small reunion with several TOST members.
At ITI booth, we got invited by our good friend, Devan Shah to offer a tasting session, which we highlight Yilan Charm - Chinsin Oolong, Amber Oolong and Milk Oolong.
Josephine did a short YouTube film on our joyful moments...
World Tea East @ Philly - 9/8-10/2011
