a tea party after dark


Long weeks require a DJ and a tea party. While my guys enjoyed their Harry-thon last Friday, I opted for a night of tea, dancing and art. It was so needed. The combo took place at the Pacific Asia Museum. I danced a bit, caught up with old friends … then sat quietly and took an amazing sip of tea at a lovely tasting. Moms, I’m sure you know that “sip”. The one that feels like a warm bubble bath … a massage … a cool breeze … 10 gorgeous men feeding you grapes … Wait, what?

OK, back to the story…

Linda Louie did an amazing presentation on the history of Pu-erh tea right before she served up a delicious cup of magic. I loved watching her hands. They moved so delicately as she prepared the tea. It was a slow, poetic movement in itself very soothing. The presentation was followed by words I shall live by, “Life is too short to drink bad tea”. I realized that I really REALLY needed to step up my tea game. The whole tea bag in hot water is synonymous with sweat pants – It’s like you’ve just given up.

Thanks P.A.M. and the Bana Tea Company for such a great evening.
