    I ended up finding a thread about what I believe is the same or a similar problem, and has to do with the Wilson theme breaking with the 1.26 update:

    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/category-and-tag-pages-are-now-all-blank/

    There is a fix, but since I’m not a premium user it’s not something I can implement myself (since I can’t edit theme files, just css); I’m hoping it’s not too much to ask to have the theme rolled back to 1.24 (at least until it’s fixed) or the fix implemented?

    I seem to have bad luck with picking themes that end up breaking.

    Yeah, there’s a few problems like the menu on certain pages links to /tea-forums/ instead of /forums/, and /tea-forums/ doesn’t actually exist, so you get a 404. There’s also a few threads that are 404, such as the stickied ‘mysterious ads’ thread.

    Check that your browser doesn’t have adblock enabled; Chrome these days comes with it right out of the box, so you might not even realize a site HAS ads. I remember someone else mentioning this–in the status stream maybe? And I immediately disabled my adblock to check.

    My blog’s the same way now. An ad after almost every post. I checked Teaconomics, and there’s no ads on the front page, but going into individual posts, there’s one at the bottom, right before the comment window.

    Definitely seeing Sorori’s ads too. At least they’re not huge, intrusive ones with flashy pictures.

    That’s all they have here now. Teavana’s earl grey does NOT make good london fogs.

    Aaah, two updates. One: I can’t seem to read any posts on my site. I checked on the dashboard, and they’re still there and editable, but get “not found” when I try to click on them in my public site. Also: I keep getting “cheatin’ uh?” every time I try to click on any admin tools, like editing my layout, or previewing themes.

    Same problem with me. Figured it was a theme-problem, went to change themes in hopes that it would fix it, ended up breaking it more. Just a php error now. Should have read the forums before-hand.

    Sorry to hear about the attack. It’s a lot of labour and love you put into this site.

    Well, a few of the books I’ve gone over have detailed countries’ attempts to internalize their tea industry (self-regulation instead of relying on world regulations/the London Tea Auctions in particular–mostly covered in “Tea Marketing Systems in Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka”), but nothing privatization in Cameroon.

    A quick search does bring up an article on Cameroon’s prime tea garden (“Tole”), as well as articles on gendered studies of tea labourers in Cameroon and the rest of Africa, and an article on malaria in tea gardens.

    In late agreement with Xavier and Bram. Unfortunately, nothing quite as big, but there are shows and festivals. The Northwest Tea Festival, the Vancouver Coffee and Tea Show, the Vancouver Tea Festival, the Victoria Tea Festival…

    Aah yes, I HAVE heard of Steeped Tea. In fact, I was invited to one of the “tupperware parties”. I declined awkwardly, since it was an invitation from my aunt’s friend (whom I’d only met about an hour prior, but my aunt let slip my tea obsession), and I’d feel out of place in a stranger’s living-room surrounded by older ladies I didn’t know, just now being introduced to the wonders of loose leaf tea.

    Also I figured the tea being sold were probably all the basic flavours that I know how to find myself. I am surrounded by DavidsTeas. I later confirmed this by googling the company when I got home. Their catalogue’s here: http://www.steepedtea.com/catalogue-insert/ Lots of fun fruity blends (they’ve added more since I last looked).

    It still seems pretty neat, and Tupperware parties are pretty successful (I assume? If they’re still around). It’d be a great, friendly way to introduce a bunch of people you know to tea. Honestly, how many times has anyone here been requested to make tea for someone they know (or several someone elses)? I know I have.

    Throw in some home-made snacks and they’re sold.

    And you can purchase through a representative in your area without necessarily attending one of their tea parties, if I remember correctly (check Online Shopping, enter your postal code [Canada], select a rep, click ‘Shop Now’ and then ‘Shop Now’ again); I assume finding someone in your general area helps cut on shipping costs.

    I clicked for the US tea farms, but I jumped on the “Canada” link at the end.

    I honestly did not even think to change the settings. That was how it was when I created the blog, and I didn’t touch it, although I figured it was in the admin settings somewhere. I like that I only have to approve one comment from someone before it auto-approves everything new from them afterwards.

    Since this site has a good group of regulars, I’m really not approving anything new too often, and only deleting the spam that makes it past the spam filter.

    Hahah, what. Well, that’s convincing enough for me to buy one. If I didn’t already own one. Two, actually.

    @xavier I haven’t, but let me check google and wikipedia.

    Unsure if the second link will work…

    I once found a place near me that sold them, but they sold each cup individually, and each saucer was sold individually from its cup. The cups themselves were five dollars, the saucers three. It was quite ridiculous.

    Correct; Russia is the birthplace of the samovar. Turkey is the birthplace of the çaydanlık, or stacked kettle. The concept is the same in both of them, however. Tea on the top, hot water in the bottom, water the tea down to your tastes.

    Turkey is also home to very elegent turkish teacup.
