|Teas available for tasting by Teas, etc on the first morning|
|Tasting some Waterfall Teas on the second morning|
On the second day, I tasted some more teas by the same vendors with their offerings out, which once again provided a nice buzz to carry me throughout the day. This was great to get some more tasting in and to expand my knowledge of teas.
I then stayed long enough to also catch a bloggers panel! Yes, my people - fellow bloggers! I knew I had to attend (yes, there was a bloggers panel the first day, but I was, sadly, unable to attend). (Yes, I realize I'm blogging about my blogging about a bloggers panel.)

I thought having a bloggers panel was a brilliant idea and I'm glad such a space was carved out for tea bloggers at the World Tea Expo. Of course, it's great for various tea bloggers to catch up and to connect with each other, but it's also great for people who are not into blogging to gain an insight into this demographic. I thought it was good, although it would have been nice if there was more time allotted for them to deal with more questions. But it was interesting for me as a blogger to see how this particular topic of bloggers considered their subject.

Also, there were some folks, including panelists, who thanked me on Twitter for the write-up (see here and here (and also here), which makes me so glad that I was able to positively contribute to such an event and to its attendees through my blogging.

I am grateful to have received this press pass and to have learned a lot about teas!
