"Spread the joys of drinking fine quality loose leaf tea with a focus on Cha Dao and Gong Fu Cha practice. Where each and every cup of tea is a universal bond of friendship and compassion."

 

Matthew (AKA: Troll) - Chajin

Troll is a lover of tea and tea culture. This involves practicing Cha Dao, including Gong Fu Cha (工夫茶) and Obon temae (お盆手前). Studying tea lore, tea history and lots of tasting...whether in a Ger on the Mongolian steppes drinking salty milk tea with Nomads, taking part in a 3 hour Chaji (茶事) in Japan with members of the Omotesenke School (表千家) or drinking tea with locals in a Xi'an Tea House. Nothing beats an early morning tea session, focusing on the tastes and scents of loose leaf teas. Husband, Father, Buddhist, Scout, Chajin.
