Voting is still going and open to the public for our 2018 Writers Contest.

Voting will be online only. We have also printed physical “ballots” with a QR code to the online voting.

We have already had a lot of interest at our booths at the Wakamatsu Tea Festival in Placerville, Tea PDX in Portland, and the Devan Shah Tea Festival in Los Angeles.

We will still have booths at the Midwest Tea Festival in Kansas City and the Northwest Tea Festival in Seattle.

Voting will continue until October 6.

To vote, go to: or click on the link that is now at the top right here on T Ching.

Winners will be announced at the Chicago Tea Festival, November 1-3.
