I began to read everything I could find. There are many good books on the subject of tea. James Norwood Pratt and Jane Pettigrew are authors that jump immediately into my mind.
People who enjoy reading are very lucky people.
I'm one of those people. When commuting on public transportation, I read. When waiting for the doctor or dentist, I read. If I'm on an airplane, I'm reading. I'm sure you're getting the picture.
I love reading and learning about many things. All about tea is one of them.
I'm not a doctor, but I think this is great for my blood pressure. I never get upset if my dentist is running a little behind schedule. I'm absorbed in something interesting as the time is passing.
This interest in tea led me to start the tea certification course through the Specialty Tea Institute. I plan to continue my studies there.
When you love something you have a natural desire to talk about it and share everything you know with everyone you know. Well, I've done that, my friends and I "talk tea." We discuss tea books and magazine articles we've read.
We often go to tea cafes together. This is one of my favorite pass times. There are so many different types of tea shops. Different teas to enjoy, different foods that complement.
Of course there is the health benefit side to this story as well. This has made me want to find recipes that use tea as ingredients.
I have plans for my future that include visiting tea growing countries. I want to see the plants.
I'd like to see the process the Camellia Sinesis plant goes through to become a green tea or a black tea. I think it would be great to actually do a hands on class, if I can find one.
About this site
I love giving useful information to my internet friends. I never imagined it could be easy to do. I am using a web host called Site Build It. It's great for everyone from beginners to web geek's.
It takes the fear out of building that first website by providing exact specific directions, design templates (already in place with many to choose from), search engine ranking complete guide, and so much more.. Most importantly it shows you how to make a little income with your site.
The information you read on this site is free, With the help of SBI though, my site will earn some income using Google ads and other affiliate programs.
You may have found this site by typing something into Google or other search engine. SBI showed me how to build pages that rank high in the major engines so I can get as much free traffic as possible.
As for earning money, Google has a program called AdSense, and it will place ads on your site that can produce some income.
A Success Story
Here's one of my favorite Site Build It! stories. Elad bought SBI! and created a site based on his hobby and began earning $2,000 per month after only six months.
He had never done any web site building before. I love to tell my readers about Elad, because it proves you don't have to have website building experience to achieve success with SBI!.
Let him tell you the story in the video below...
My web host SBI, is completely risk free. SiteSell.com will give you a FULL refund if it's not for you, and there's no "trial period".
They can honor a great guarantee because they give more that you expect. Their product is really outstanding and the success stories like Elad's and others back it up.
If you decide to share your knowledge, what you will need is a mentor and exceptional tools. If you know nothing about building a web site but would love to tell the world something about_______________. Fill in the blank with things like:
How to plan a beautiful flower garden
Take perfect pictures
Making an older relative comfortable when seriously ill
Teaching children to show kindness to others
Plan for college tuition
Harry Potter trivia
Where to find the best soft shell crabs in Maryland
Living with Crohn's disease
This list could go on and on, what's your passion? SBI can help you find out if your plan is a good one.
I know I've strayed from loose leaf tea here, but my excitement for others bubbles over. If you want to know "how to" put your knowledge on the web while at the same time making extra income Site Build It is the mentor that will lead you from -10 through blast off to success.
I want to catch up to Elad. You can follow his lead too.
I hope this idea turns out to be just your cup of tea.
