Tea drinkers and connesieurs of Pittsburgh
The first Pittsburgh-related tea community on Livejournal!

Here, you can post about events or tea meetups in the Pittsburgh area.

Tea tips, recipes, and other useful information posted by the maintainers can be found in the Memories section. Feel free to contribute with tea-related information of your own. :)


RULES
I. Be kind and respect everyone's posts.

II. Keep pictures underneath a lj-cut.

III. Advertising is allowed, but it must be tea-related, or it will be deleted.

IV. If you post and coordinate a meetup, you are responsible for it. The community maintainers are not.

V. This isn't really a rule, but it would be greatly appreciated if you promote the community in other related lj communities. Makes the world less small. :D



It's not required, but if you want to let everyone know what kind of interest you have in tea, I have put together an introductory survey. It's located in the memories page.
