At last, the lady of the The Tea and Hat Lady is portrayed as the aroma, fragrance, as well as the Spirit of the Tea on my business publications. I have been searching for an Avatar that would best depict my tea inspiration -- Leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant and the processing preformed to release the flavors we enjoy . A lot of time has been devoted to my study of these leaves and their processing so that I could accurately share my tea passion with you.
The study of the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant sounds so very dry and uninteresting. When in reality it is a process which produces a beverage that originates from an all-natural and environmentally sound renewable source.
The oxidation of the tea leaf is a natural process. It is the level of oxidation in the process that determines whether the leaf becomes a white, green, oolong, black, or Pu'erh tea.
Now that I have bored you to death, let me present a lighter side of my search. Not long ago I would not have known what an Avatar was or its purpose. Today I know that, at least one, definition of an Avatar is "an image of somebody in virtual reality." How ironic that I should be so concerned with having the perfect Avatar to represent my interest in tea. This historical beverage that has been around for thousands of years represented by a computer generated image is silly, don't you think?
