The 2010 ITM "Best Of" Tea Event

The weatherman predicted rain, but it was blue skies that greeted my guests for An International Tea Moment's Best of 2010 Tea Event! And indoors, trays of 10 award-winning teas were offered in a tea tasting. Ballots were cast, and the Fan Favorite was announced.

I do enjoy a good tea party, and this one was just what the doctor ordered. Fun, happy, intelligent, accomplished women gathered together for a couple hours of conversation, laughter, and tea.  And one of the great joys was introducing them all to these tea secrets that I long to shout from the rooftops. So much variety, something for everyone. Whether you drink tea everyday, or just like a cup from time to time, these teas are special and accessible. I think my guests agreed.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I don't know how many words a YouTube video is, but here is my humble and first-time attempt to express myself and a wonderful tea moment in this medium.

Congratulations to DAVIDsTEA! Toasted Walnut was hands down the Fan Favorite of the Event, receiving votes nearly double its closest competition.
