  • Teance, Berkeley

  • Let's take a little peek into Teance, a store in Berkeley's West 4th shopping district. The store sells a variety of single-origin teas sourced from Asia. In the center is a round table where you can order full tea tastings, and in the back is a small cafe area with seating upstairs. We sam[...]
  • BAMPFA | Berkeley Photography

That's not to say I didn't still find myself in a fair share of them, but I would rarely select a museum over another activity or just wandering a city. It's only in the last couple years that I've found myself drawn to these places. I think especially [...]

My friend Saira and I hopped over for a tea date one afternoon.   Most orders at Asha are just handed over in to-go cups, but Saira an[...]
  • A Weekend in Vermont

  • Vermont was the perfect weekend getaway to kick off the new year. We did intend to go skiing initially, but the poor snow conditions meant we skipped the slopes and stuck to the cozy cottage and all the small-town cheese and maple syrup shops. [...]
