Tea in Spoons 6 Year Recap and Future of the Blog | Anniversary Update

by teainspoons

March 5th, 2021 marked my 6th year of running Tea in Spoons and I wanted to reflect on my tea journey and share the side project I’ve been working on behind the scenes!

I still can’t believe this tea adventure all started because I walked into a DAVIDsTEA one afternoon after a shift at work. What began as a Tumblr blog to help ground me after moving to a new city has given me opportunities I never dreamed of such as living on a tea farm in Japan, travelling to Taiwan, Hong Kong, and New York, being a judge, or a panelist, and meeting all my tea friends! Running this blog has truly changed my life.

As I move forward with the blog, I want to pick up my TEA 101 series again and create more content for new tea drinkers. I’ve had a few people tell me that they found my blog when they first started their own tea journey, and I want to give future new tea drinkers as many tools and information as I can. I also want to expand and explore more areas of teas that I am interested in such as comparative tastings and tasting from new and exciting regions!

Now to the side project, I’ve been teasing throughout the post: I made my own custom spoons (top/left one in the photo)! I have to first give big thanks to Lu Ann from The Cup of Life who persistently kept suggesting I should make my own spoons. So after 6 months of hard work, I did! The spoon, from design to the finished product, has been my brainchild. While I’ve loved using the DAVIDsTEA’s Perfect Spoon (metal ones), after 6 years I wanted to have something to commemorate my tea adventure and spoons to call my own. I’m very happy with the results and I hope everyone likes them too!

Lastly, thank you to everyone who has been here on this journey and for supporting and encouraging me. It really does mean a lot. Even after all these years, there is still so much to see and learn about tea and I hope everyone comes along with me for the ride. Here’s to more tea. Let’s go!

The question of the post: What was your first tea memory?

Edit: Jann from Tea with Jann kindly wished me a happy blog-anniversary in her Tea News video, as well as Nicole from Tea from Me Please in her weekly round-up! Make sure to check out all the news and blog posts that also came out this week!

Happy Anniversary & congrats on bringing your spoon vision to life. 1st memory of tea is probably a children’s tea set & having a tea party where I drank & ate at all 4 chairs.

Thank you! I have memories like that as well! Tea is really a life long adventure.

Wow, congratulations on 6 big years of blogging, and on the nifty new spoon! The classic spoons are so nostalgic to me by this point but it’s also super neat that you have a spoon all your own now haha. Much love and cheers to many more years!

Thanks! I am also sad to move away from the metal spoons, but I am excited to use these new ones!

[…] I mentioned in my last post, I’m hoping to write more comparison posts, and this tea seemed perfect since I have two teas […]
