Every year, more than a hundred members and non-members submit photography to express their Tea spirit. We so enjoy watching how people creatively show the ways Tea is manifesting in their lives. It is always so hard to choose our winners each year. We discuss our favorites, ask guests what they think and are often awestruck by so many of the entries that it is hard to choose a winner. Alas, it is a contest! We would like to commend the bravery of all the photographers and to say that we love them all. They will stay up on our website as beacons of Tea spirit to the world!
