Talking Tea: Tea Culture/Youth Culture
This week on Talking Tea we look at the growing
popularity of tea and tea culture among youth and teens. Chatting
with us (via Skype) is Connor Adlam of Tching.com, the well-known blog and
online forum for tea information.
Connor, the intern social media editor at Tching and
also a member of this demographic, shares his perspectives both
from a personal standpoint and from his work at Tching. We
chat about what makes tea and tea culture attractive to younger
drinkers, the role of social media in breaking through
misinformation and stereotypes, and how tea connects with the
rising interest in mindfulness and spirituality among young
people. Connor also talks with us about his own “tea ride” and how
tea drinkers of all ages can use online resources to increase their
knowledge of tea and connect with the depth, passion and
diversity of the worldwide tea community.
You can find Tching’s many resources (including
articles by Connor) at Tching.com, at its Facebook
page and Twitter
feed and on Instagram at tchingblog.
