This was a message I received on TeaChat, in response to a posting I asked for feedback on this blog.
I have posted this same question before, on Steepster, and got great ideas and suggestions! When I posted the same discussion on TeaChat, this was the first response I got. He later messaged me again and said I was being sensitive and that he didn’t mean to offend me. He said blogging was narcissistic and that he didn’t respect Teavana (which, if he had read anything of mine, neither do I). A couple of other people commented on the thread that I just wasn’t posting the teas they wanted to see…they wanted loose leaf teas and not a lot of them like flavored or blended teas (again, me either).
So, here is my disclaimer:
I am not a Tea Master, Sommelier or Tea Expert. I am an enthusiast and tend to find that I know more than the average person. I am not writing this blog so that I can rival with editorials, magazines or experts in the field. I am sharing what I know and what I am learning along the way. I post reviews so that you can make a more informed decision on what you buy. You will also see information on Depression and IBS. This blog isn’t meant as a reference for expert information. It is meant as a resource for information that I was always looking for and couldn’t find on my own. This is for people who want to learn more about teas and maybe about Depression and IBS here and there.
PS. You don’t have to read it, if you don’t like it. But, if you like it and just think it needs tweaking, I’m always open to suggestions. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
