'5' minute readings

To keep us entertained and motivated to read during the lockdowns of 2020, every week I did a '5' minute reading from our book of the month on YouTube. As things have picked up and we've started to settle into a "new normal" I've not had as much time to do these. However, here are the ones from this year, feel free to tune in, listen to a excerpts from different books and maybe get inspired to pick them up and read them yourself. Or better yet, join us by signing up and reading along with us or popping in to our meet-ups for a good chat about our current read. Share your thoughts and meet other like minded tea people from around the world.​

Just one of the things I do from time to time to share the joy of reading about tea.
