It’s been quite the busy semester for me up here in quaint bum-fuck Reno. I’ve been preoccupied with teaching my first semester of Chinese at the university and trying to keep up with my own master’s degree. Of course, this hasn’t kept me from drinking tea, nor exploring the deep sea of information out there about pu’er tea, but has in many ways halted my progression of contributions to the Dead Leaves Club.
各位看官，好久不見! 因為這學期又教書又讀書，真的有夠忙! 娘，妳不要失望喔，孩兒還是以課業為重 (誤)。 教師備課不但要備教學內容，還要把教學方法跟教學步驟想清楚。除此之外還要寫自己的功課啊…雖然沒有忙到要崩潰了，但可惜沒有多餘的時間來想博客的事情了。我還在慢慢地深度搜集普洱茶世界的資訊，可是往後文章的進展恐怕會越來越緩慢。我在這就不再贅言,只想說說我最近的想法。
To be perfectly honest, it is often difficult for me to decide what information is worthy of putting up on this blog. Often I find posting my own opinion often seems too large a test for my thin-skinned nature. I have not felt the urge to translate most of the information I have found recently, either. Often it seems more fitting to leave interesting findings to more respected voices in the community, or at least those with at least an interesting voice to contribute. I’ve limited myself to my own simple finds and helping when needed with communication on group buys. More and more I’ve been leisurely taking my time to enjoy the ineffable qualities of tea. This has pushed me a little further away from discussion at times…but I trust I’ll get back to it at some point
I suppose that’s all I have for today. More updates to come as time permits. I hope folks are enjoying the blog so far. Thank you all for the time and consideration.

I really love the blog and I’m happy that your skin is thick enough to put yourself out there. Thank you.
Thank you for the support! We’ll be around for sure. Thank you for your patience 🙂
more experiments would be cool! storage stuff, or “does teaware really make a difference”, that sort of idea.
Thank you for the suggestions. I will certainly pass the message along to Alex, too.
