The Shreveport Tea Series is a 10 part series of lectures & tea tastings developed by Garrett Johnson, as well as his personal tea reviews. In the fall of 2013, Garrett Johnson began a ten-part lecture & tasting series on loose-leaf, hot tea.
What he thought would be a simple process of seeking information on traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Indian styles of tea wound up being a desperate search for very little information. This site is not only a repository of tea information from all over the internet, tasting blogs, translated texts, and academic papers, but also a place to share his personal odyssey into the world of this ancient and surprising beverage. Garrett's love for tea is directly dedicated to his father who developed an obsession with tea after working in a multicultural office for over 30 years. http://20x49.shreveport-bossier.org/index.php/2014/01/28/garrett-johnsons-tea-series-continues-at-cohabitat/

Rakkasan Tea Company, brother we're here for it. Awesome article by The Bitter Southerner as always. Southern tea is on the upswing as our region takes (for really the first time) control of beverage production that defines it.

Solid tea geekery
Tea’s a five-thousand year mystery tale. For every major fact we know, there is so much we have only been able to guess at or approximate about the “why” and “how” behind it. Here are the main mysteries: Flavors: Tea has an astonishing range of flavors and aromas: Mystery: How are they created from the hundreds of chemical compounds in the leaf and the thousands that are formed in oxidation?

[04/23/18] Phew! Between Yoga Farm Fest and Art in the Meadow I served tea to over 100 people and taught them a few things about it!

Today is the Qingming Festival!
"Tomb-Sweeping Day" 15 days after the Spring Equinox is not only a memorial day in Chinese culture, but for tea drinkers it marks the harvest of "pre-qingming" leaves and anticipates the large Yu Qian second harvest. "Pre-qingming" teas are the first available and are seen as the top quality.

Even though you can't beat the ol' teapot or gaiwan, this ZENS Pi Travel Tea Set is the bees knees for workplace drinking. Enjoy this long-winded review!
shreveporttea.org I'm basically the curmudgeon of the tea world. Whenever I see a Kickstarter for some overblown gadget that supposedly makes tea brewing easy, all it seems to do is over-mystify a hobby that is already associated with snobbery or complication. In my opinion all you need is a Finum tea basket ,&am
