A major announcement about my business:
 
BIG NEWS! We have really enjoyed our store location in Olde Burien for nearly five years, but we're moving to a new location at the beginning of July. We will be on the same street, about 5 blocks east of the current shop, in a space that is much bigger, with greater visibility, in the heart of downtown Burien. Parking is more convenient and we will have more space for classes, all kinds of events, and plenty of room for people to come in to drink pots of tea. Come by the shop in the next week if you want to say goodbye to the lovely little place we have called home since we opened.

In case any of you were wondering about the monetary value of education.

New pen. I tested writing with it and couldn't resist.

Haha!  I picked one of those up (but in black, of course) not long ago.  I almost showed it to you when you brought out the space pen during the NW Tea Festival.  I like it as a pocket pen, but I've found it makes my hand tired after much use because it's so narrow.  The nib has more flex than I would have expected.

My new BFF. This brilliantly designed pen has room in the barrel for a spare cartridge.

Oh, it's pure aluminum?  (I originally typed "puer".)  I thought it was steel.  Okay, yes, that I'd treat with a little more care.  I typically use liquid ink in a converter, which is a different use case than cartridges.  If I'm going somewhere with lots of writing pending, I just make sure the ink level is topped up.  I can definitely see the utility of an already-stored spare cartridge.

This is going to be a lovely event.
 
Tatsuo Tomeoka, owner of Charaku Fine Japanese Tea, will lead a tea tasting class that will explore the variety, history, and culture of Japanese green tea. We plan to taste a wide variety of teas from various appellations around Japan, and and at this time will taste the 2015 new harvest (shincha) tea. Besides regional variations of Sencha, we will also experience the various processing styles that lead to Fukamushicha (Deep-Steamed Tea,) Tamaryokucha ("Coiled, or Ball-rolled" Tea,) Houjicha (Roasted GreenTea,) Genmaicha (Sencha plus Roasted Brown Rice,) and Kukicha (Stem Tea.) We'll conclude the tasting with Charaku's Premium Organic Matcha, which will be accompanied by seasonal, hand-made wagashi sweets from Seattle-based Tokara, one of the few professional Japanese confectioneries in the U.S.

Come enjoy the flavors and culture of Japanese green tea!

$20 per person, includes tasting of tea from Charaku Fine Japanese Tea and wagashi (sweets) from Tokara.

This is not the particular pen from Conklin that I am drooling over, but I think that +Michael J. Coffey should see it. The Word Gauge fountain pen is a great "pen geek" object.
The Word Gauge™ fountain pen blends the original vision of the classic Nozac (no-sac) series that was introduced in the 1930's with today's cutting-edge technology in materials and manufacturing. Each piston-fill pen has a large view window that is engraved with a "Word Gauge" – numbered ...

Yes, your email this morning alerted me to that fantastic pen, and I can tell that it looks better than the photos.

Some nice exposure in the Seattle Globalist. If you read a couple things in here that seem like things I wouldn't say, I probably didn't. I've decided that it's okay to be a little misunderstood by an interviewer.
The festival's World of Tea Series provides an opportunity for people to explore teas from around the world.

This should be of particular interest to +Michael J. Coffey, for two reasons, but could be of interest to others as well.

Haha!  My eye was caught by the name before I even saw who had posted it, or that I was mentioned.  :)  Listening now.

Come to a special tasting event to support relief efforts in Nepal, this Saturday, from 10:00am to noon, at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center.
 
On May 23rd, Northwest Tea Festival is sponsoring a benefit for Nepal Earthquake relief efforts as part of the World of Tea series. Since Nepal is nestled in the Himalayas among many world-renowned tea growing regions, and is itself a producer of fine teas, it seems particularly appropriate that the tea community step up to provide some aid in Nepal’s time of suffering.

There will be a tasting of teas from that general region, principally Darjeeling and Nepal. There will also be tea items for sale contributed by local tea companies. 100% of the proceeds will go to the relief efforts. Additional cash, credit card, or check donations will be accepted as well. Cost is $20 per person. Pay in advance, or at the event.
