There are many instances in life that leave you wishing that each day held more hours. If given an extra four hours a day, I am not one of those people who would allocate any of that additional time to my insurance career. Rather, I would spend that time with my son and wife.

I have heard and read that Nepal teas have some traits similar to Darjeeling teas. Thanks to the generosity of Niru Trading, I have an opportunity to try samples of white, green, black, and oolong teas from the foothills of Mount Kanchenjunga in Nepal. These will be my first experiences with Nepalese teas, so needless to say that I am quite excited to try them out and compare them with teas that… Read More

On the evening of October 14th, my journey through the world of tea tasting returned me to the Uva region of Sri Lanka. Though this time it is not the famous black teas of the region that bring me here, it is a Silver Tips white tea from the farm of a man that is both a business contact and what I consider to be my friend.
