Our goals for the coming year:
Increase membership to 2,000 by January 1st, 2015
Hire an architect and begin building in 2015
Incorporate Global Tea Hut in Taiwan so we can offer Taiwanese visas to foreign volunteers
Ways in which Global Tea Hut will continue to improve as we get near our goals:
At 1,000 members, we'll start traveling more to research articles on tea and teaware, and to source new and different organic teas. As an awesome side-effect, this will allow us to connect organic farmers to each other and to you!
At 1,500 members, we'll start translating modern and ancient Chinese and Japanese tea wisdom to English. In many cases, these will be the first translations of major Asian tea texts into English!
Use social media and email to share our videos, our links and membership to Global Tea Hut. Post photos of your tea sessions and GTH envelopes. Spread the word to people who may benefit from membership as much as you do!
Share each month's tea with friends. Show them the newsletter and tell them why you love your subscription. Tell them we need 2,000 members this year to begin construction on the world's best free tea center.
Before you visit, check out the center's website (www.teasagehut.org) and read about the schedule, food, what you should bring, etc. We've had a big increase in our number of guests lately, so if possible please contact well in advance to arrange a visit.
We just pressed organic Ailao sheng puerh cakes from 1000-year-old trees as a fundraiser for our new tea center, Light Meets Life. We will also press two more types of cakes, including a snow chrysanthemum shou puerh like we pressed last year and "Golden Vajra", May's tea of the month (only in cakes).
Wu De will be at the center until October working on two new books! After that he will be teaching in Spain & France. Contact Antonio at Caj Chai Teahouse (email@example.com) for more information about dates and events.
There is a lot of momentum towards a more permanent tea space in Moscow. Say some prayers for our friends there!
