A tea conversation with Marjolein Raijmakers

By Kym Cooper. Posted | 1 comment

I first encountered Marjolein Raijmakers via her beautifully curated Instagram feed all about her passion for tea. We love her images but you will understand (because we like our words) that we enjoy reading her captions equally as much. She takes the time to describe the moment, the intention, the experience so well that you feel as though you are right next to her on the journey.

Rather than give you an overview of each resource, take a look, see if it works for you and get in contact if you come across any...

In pursuit of tea knowledge: tea resources for the emerging teaist

By Kym Cooper. Posted

When I reflect on my tea journey to date I always wonder if the path I took to pursuit tea knowledge may have been different if I didn't approach it as haphazardly as I did. Would I have arrived at a different point? Or would I have arrived at the same point perhaps via a different path? For me, it doesn't really matter as my personal journey to acquire tea knowledge has certainly not ended. If anything, with every new tea I drink or new tea practitioner I meet, comes the realisation that tea is fluid and dynamic and mastering...
