In case you hadn’t heard, I’ve been promoted from “Tea Monkey” to “Manager” at the Random Tea Room. We’re a single-barista shop, so this involves more operational rather than supervisory responsibilities. As you can see, I’m currently implementing our “Friendly Faces” customer service initiative.

The second “Philadelphia Tea Institute” book club is underway: Victor Mair’s “The True History of Tea.” I’ll have a review in a few weeks, but in the meantime I thought I’d share a study aid I’ve been working on: “The True History of Tea” Atlas!
I welcome comments if you have corrections, but please keep in mind that places you don’t see on the map may be added later, or else aren’t mentioned in “The True History of Tea.”
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to figure out how I’m going to serve Hunan Baishaxi tonight in Tibetan fashion, without any yak butter.
