Hi, I’m Bonnie. Welcome to my world of matcha, teapots, and all things artfully inspired by tea. I’m a SoCal girl through and through, but have spent time living in both Hawaii and South Carolina… coincidentally, two of the few places in the United States where tea is actually grown!

My background is in health education (Go Trojans!), Asian American Studies (Go Bruins!), and the culinary arts (Go New School of Cooking!). Although these interests may seem broad, with tea I’m able to join these passions together into one creative space. I started Thirsty for Tea as a way for me to connect with others who love tea as much as I do, and to broaden the idea of what tea time means.

If you’ve made it here, chances are that you either love tea or want to learn more about it. Drop me a line about your favorite teas, recipes you’d like to see posted, or even your latest awesome tea experience. I’d love to hear from you!

Make tea often and stay thirsty!
