First UK London Steepster meet!
Has already happened.
It was basically me giving Rui a 7536, then I asked VoirenTea, and she showed, I gave her some tea too, and then Mr Coconutm1lk arrived and we basically drank tea for a few hours.
It was great fun, and totally relaxed.
Next year is the next date, unconfirmed as yet. We will give everyone fair notice. Hopefully this can turn into a thing, please come along and share tea, it will be great. Me & Rui are going to at least meet each other 3-4 times a year.
Other locations suggested are Guildford to meet with GreenTeaGuru. I liked Mei Leaf for its teaware and services, easy to get to for lots of people(?)
Any thoughts or just to check in and say you are interested, please do. :)
Congrats on the first meet, looks like you had a fun time. If you don’t mind me sitting in, I would love to join you for the next one.
You know what Alistair?, I realised on the day I should have invited you. It was only supposed to be me meeting Rui and at the last minute then I asked VoirenTea and he asked Jeremy.
Next time I will do a proper steepster post & private messages to everyone I know uk
There will be a larger time slot
Rui will ask if it can be a regular thing
It’s quite alright, it would be great to do it potentially as a regular event and there are also a few redditors from London I’ve met and can ask along too.
Great! Redditors very welcome
we are aiming for every 3 or 4 months. I quite like the idea of it being 4 times a year, keeping it seasonal.
Some people might think its a bit of a commitment, but it was so fun i’d be happy to do it more often than less. Me and Rui made a tea pact to meet and swap more often anyway
Announce it early and maybe I’ll pop over too… London is just under 2 hours away and I haven’t been in a while and am overdue! Hmm. I could meet all my favourite vendors and go home with a suitcase full of tea…
Please add us to your mailing list. Happy to come up to London from Dorset when we are about.
You can always come down to Dorset. There are a couple of tea shops here now.

All the best
