welcomeAs our new Student Editor, Alexandra Hoover has the perfect combination of passions and skills.  It goes without saying that she loves tea and, by her own admission, “drinks too many cups of tea a day”.  But she is also an accomplished writer, who has not only been a T Ching guest contributor since May, but is also the Los Angeles Spirituality Examiner at examiner.com.  With a degree in anthropology already under her belt, Alexandra is a student once again, pursuing graduate studies in anthropology at California State University, Northridge.  In addition to continuing to write about tea from her unique perspective, Alexandra will be recruiting more young people to the site by taking advantage of the world of social networking.  Please welcome Alexandra!
