    Via Geoff. Pic of @lazyliteratus and @thedevotea meeting for the first time. Oh, and according to Geoff, “the universe didn’t explode.” These two handsome fellas are members of The Beasts of Brewdom.

    Update: More Tea Traders have landed in Vegas: @jopj and @lazyliteratus. @iheartteas is on her way. Looking forward to The Titans meeting soon. Will they clash? No, not unless one of them gets busted for possession of teabags.

    Have our sellers here ever thought about hosting something like this? A “tea-ware” party with friends? In someone’s home offering your own teas? @iheartteas @thedevotea?
    I think it would be an interesting idea to be able to taste teas and buy at a friend’s house, or a recommended agent.

    @bram I do see what you mean. Especially if there were a lot of Tea Planet posts entering the stream. We should certainly monitor how that looks. Right now, Tea Planet is still unknown really, so it appearing in the stream, reminds people of its presence. And that it is changing and growing.
    We’ll keep an eye on the stream and can perhaps decide a little further down the road how to handle its presentation. I’m certainly aware of the issue, just not sure yet how best to deal with it.

    @xavier just for the sake of drinking something? Then you could just drink water? @johndelaney I drink tea because of the taste foremost but it is closely intertwined with tradition and family connections. By that I mean that I grew up drinking tea, as we were loose leaf tea drinkers in our household. A long time ago family members owned a tea plantation in Sri Lanka, so perhaps tea is just in my blood.

    Re: making sure the water doesn’t sit too long, I agree @johndelaney. I love our Breville which allows me to set the tea to be ready when I wake up in the morning. However, the water is added the night before, so it is not freshly poured water. Sadly I can’t see a work-around. It’s either that, or no tea at the ready in the morning.

    @bram = Denmark? I remember a nice post or two you wrote about Copenhagen last time, they were fun to read. Did you go there again?

    @xavier – this is a brilliant find – it’s great you shared it. I’m still reading through the document, but it’s fascinating. @thedevotea, have you read this? It’s definitely a subject you’ve always been concerned with too. @bram @cazort you immediately spring to mind too.

    Thanks everyone for your input. Taking Tea Trade out of the equation – because we all use that, it looks like twitter probably wins. I think everyone except @bram has a twitter account. I like reddit but rarely remember to go there. G+ seems to be very slow on the tea front. As @thedevotea said, it’s mainly for chat with other tea people, but most of them are on twitter, or here, so I don’t get much new out of it. Certainly G+ isn’t a happening place for me. I’ve gone off the communities there, maybe because they are too large to function as real communities. As to Pinterest, I don’t like their new design, and have used it much less since they implemented it. I’m fond of twitter though, it was my first large-scale social online tea experience.

    Wow, thanks for sharing. That’s really horrible – I didn’t realize the “magnitude” of this earthquake and the impact and consequences it had.

    Thanks @xavier that was an interesting article you shared there. I generally choose taste over convenience unless I really have no time to make the effort.
