This year's World Tea Expo is my 3rd trip to this event. I've appreciated the opportunities to learn and meet new people each year. I've made friends and contacts from every corner of the world and every continent save for Antarctica. The events and sights from this first day of the expo are similar to those from the past two years. Full of energy, vibrant colors and effusive scents tantalizing for everyone here.

Every year at the World Tea Expo Thomas Shu, a tea dignitary from Taiwan, sings songs related to tea. He does this very well with a wonderful voice and this talent tends to draw additional visitors to the Taiwan Tea Association booth. Here are two videos I took of Thomas' songs at the expo last weekend.
I've been watching the hits for months, tracking when traffic waxes and wanes during the weeks and have come to one overriding fact... I get less traffic on Mondays than most any other day of the week.
I have pushed back today's scheduled post on the "Tasting Notes" application for the iPhone and iPod Touch in order to bring you updates on a number of topics I've noted on earlier occasions.
