Many thanks to Ricardo for taking time to “Talk Tea” with us.
Q. Ricardo, can you tell us a bit about why you started the My Japanese Green Tea blog and podcast? And, what you like most about being a tea blogger and podcaster?
A. I have always been fascinated with Japanese culture, and while living in Japan as a student I experienced green tea. When I came back home, I wanted to learn more about it, but since I couldn’t find a place online like I wanted, I decided to create my own.
As I explore and learn more about Japanese green tea, I share my knowledge with everyone, which is the primary goal of the blog and the podcast.
What I like the best about being a tea blogger/podcaster is that I have been able to meet many people of the tea industry, including fellow tea bloggers. Even though I don’t live in the US, I was able to talk with most of them at the World Tea Expo this year, which was a great experience.
Q. What is one of your favorite “tea moments?
