Who is Tea Lady Mel?

    Ahhh yes, fellow tea lover. When stressed out or upset, always a cup of tea soothes the spirit like nothing else. There must be something extraordinarily soulful about it. Coffee just doesn’t do it. A cup of tea? Always. :-)

    Hi Mel. I enjoy tea too and love Earl Grey. What do you recommend to drink in Taipei?

    Hi Mel, i am Kevin from Singapore. Have always been a tea lover but now I am trying to do it seriously. Haha… May I know where should I get those tea equiptments? Like infuser, pots and cool mugs. I tried going amazon but the shipping fees are stupid. I actually travel quite a bit, so it will be nice if you can give me some place to go in states or uk. I can even bring back some for you. Cheers!

      Hi Kevin, thanks for dropping a note – and for the offer to get me tea from near and far! You can try Peony Tea Solutions (www.peonyts.com) for getting some starter Chinese tea equipment (delivered right to your doorstep). There’s also the Lupicia store at Great World City. I find sometimes, even department stores have some pretty cool teaware. Hope this helps!

    Have been trying to love tea for years, is there any hope for me, or am I destined to drink great coffee all my life. ??? P.S. Liz is my Artist Hero!

      Hi Sally, great coffee ain’t too bad either heh. Taste is a very personal thing…so just stay open to trying different types of tea – love can’t be forced ;) There’s a school of thought that people who love great coffee are partial to the stronger-tasting teas such as Lapsang Souchong or pu’erh so why not give those a go one day? Have fun :)

    Lovely blog you have there. I am also from Singapore :)

    Recently, I was thinking of documenting my adventures and I stumbled upon your blog. I love Taiwanese Oolong and those from Wuyi. Let’s see if we have a chance to cross paths :D keep up the good work Mel!!!
