A Little Anniversary

A few hours to go till one year has past since my first TeaTrade blogpost. A year that went by extremely fast with many blogposts left unwritten and many left for the time to come. The statistics from my Dashboard so far: 18 posts 98 comments 272 media That should not be too hard to […]

A Short Tea Trade

The Dutch, the English, the French, the Portuguese, the Spanish and from a certain time onwards the Americans all traded with China over sea in the 18th century. I probably missed a few of the smaller traders. The one I missed on purpose is the one this post is about: Austria. Yes, that country closed […]

Tea in Hamburg 4: A walk among Blomen and Asia

Another day, another walk. Tea in flask and of we go.   Besides the river Elbe Hamburg also has two lakes to make the city a bit watery. The Binnenalster and the Außenalster are artificial lakes around which the city expanded. (Warning: this post is photo heavy. So it might take a while to load)

Tea and Sensibilitea

There are many famous people I would love to have tea with. Plato, the Doctor in all his incarnations and with Amy, Sherlock Holmes, even though I would probably be pointed out things about myself that I do not want to know, Newton with Apple pie, Lipton to show him what his legacy has become, […]

Tea in Stockholm 2: Oh deer

As I said before in a previous post: What better way to unwind from a great but energy consuming gathering than a long walk. So tea in flask and out I went. From my hotel I just have to cross the street to reach the fields of Ladugårdsgärde so that is where I start. (This […]

Tea in Hamburg 3: Tea please, with bubbles

After announcements, discussion and commercials I had to try the hype: Tea with bubbles, also called Bubbletea. It had arrived in Germany and the store with the megalomania letter that tries to sell what Americans call food added it to their so called food selection. And because I was in Germany for a few days […]

Tee, Spiel und Essen

And here we were again, for me the 16th time. In a place full of winners, losers and mostly people that are both. But who cares about winning or losing? It is all about the games on the Internationale Spieltage SPIEL in Essen, Germany that take place each October. Considering this was the fourth time […]

Tea on the Moon

Soon this time of festivities ends and people look back at the year. Seeing it as a success, a loss or just as is. A lot has happened this year both good and not so good. I was lucky that bad did not make it this year to my door (as far as I know). […]

Tea in Hamburg 2: A walk among Blomen and time

The conference was over, I moved closer to the city center and what better way to recover from a few very intense days of listening, sitting and learning a lot than a good walk. So after pinning some points on the map out I go. Into the city that a few others here at TeaTra.de […]

Tea in Stockholm 1: Is there tea in Copenhagen?

After the I don’t know how many reference to Tea a Magazine I decided that I was interested in trying it. Hmmm, international postage is almost twice the price of a subscription in the US. Could take a digital subscription, but I don’t like reading on my PC. There goes nothing above the smell of […]
