A month ago, during a tea-‘n-matcha-fueled dinner pairing, a university educator asked me this:
“What do you do?”
“I’m just a tea blogger,” I replied.
She sort of tilted her head, confusedly—like a Saint Bernard.
Then asked, “Why?”
The follow-up question caught me off-guard. I was both hurt and offended by it. Not because she meant it as a slight (it wasn’t and she didn’t), but more because . . . I had no clue how to answer that question.
But I’m getting ahead of myself . . . let’s get back to that tea pairing I mentioned at the beginning.
