The Aficionado:

 

Kenneth Cannata found his passion for tea while in college.  In 2006 he accompanied his school (DRBU.org) to Taiwan to experience the culture there first hand.  During the pilgrimage he found the tea shops a wonderful place to practice speaking Chinese in a welcoming atmosphere.  Tea became a bridge across oceans and cultures that he utilizes and shares to this day.

  

After graduating in 2009 with a degree in Chinese Studies, Kenneth has worked extensively as a volunteer, teacher, and tea entrepreneur. Follow Kenneth on Instagram @KenCannata He is currently pursuing his M.A. in Buddhist Classics at Dharma Realm Buddhist University in Ukiah, CA.
