The Great Adventure!!!

Hey everyone!

I originally created this “Profile/Instagram”, for a few years back I was consistently traveling, exploring, and sharing great tea with people from all over; however, due to life situations, my journeys can to an abrupt halt. However, I finally had everything resolved and put back into place, so I will be continuing my true passions of traveling to new places, meeting great people, and sharing amazing tea!

My current adventure is due to commence within a couple weeks. I will be taking my love, and we will be traveling all over the U.S. for quite some time. I would like to know if anyone has any “tea-related” suggestions on where to stop.

I have contacted a few tea growers, shop owners, and “gong-fu” spots along the way if they wouldn’t mind me stopping in to drink and take pictures, and I have received positive feedback!

We will be driving through/stopping in the following states:

Pennsylvania;
Maryland;
Virginia;
North Carolina;
South Carolina;
Georgia;
Mississippi;
Alabama;
Nebraska;
Arkansas;
Louisiana;
Arizona;
California;
Wyoming;
South Dakota;
Montana;
Idaho;
Washington;
Oregon;
Nevada.

I am open to any ideas if they are not too far from the route.

I hope to find a way to share the adventures and hopefully educate and detail about whats going on in the “tea world” across the United States!

I am only about 30 minutes away. I know a killer Chinese restaurant in Roanoke that will allow us to gong fu! I will bring the grandson to perform those chores for us. Any idea on the date you are expected?

If you are going to be near Williamsburg, Va there is an excellent tea store called Discover Teas. They have a second location, I don’t remember where but it would be on their website.

Sadly, newport news is a bit too far off track, so I wouldn’t be able to visit.

If you drive through state college PA definitely check out the Tea Institute at Penn State (https://www.facebook.com/%E9%9D%92%E7%99%BD%E8%8C%B6%E9%A4%A8-The-Penn-State-Tea-House-159841094057870/)

Sadly, I won’t be able to visit the tea institute. I really wish I could though.

Any idea when that might be?

Seattle is my 21st stop on the trip, so I would guess either late June or first week of July.

Isn’t there a small tea plantation in Oregon or maybe it was Washington? But a vaguely recall seeing tea made in one of the Northwest States on a website. It was quite expensive but maybe you could take a tour.

If you are driving through North Carolina or South Carolina not sure which it is in but the Charleston Tea Plantation in my understanding gives tours and sells a fairly decent tea too.

I will look in the Oregon plantation.

I am a maybe on being able to visit the Charleston Plantation; I am still unsure if my route will allow for it.
