Here at T Ching, we’re focusing on our intention to shine a brighter spotlight on all our incredible writers. With that in mind, each month we pick one of our talented contributors to prominently display as our Featured Writer.

October 2020 Featured Writer - Dan Robertson - A photo of Dan

Dan’s enjoyable blend of knowledge and humor always makes exchanges with him a delight. He’s added value to T Ching by contributing since the year we began – in 2006.

Dan Robertson is the founder and owner of The Tea House and World Tea Tours in Naperville, Illinois. He was born in New Haven, CT, raised primarily in the Midwest, and is a graduate of the College of Wooster, Ohio. He is a 25-year practitioner and instructor of the martial art and health exercise Tai Ji Quan.

Before venturing into the world of tea, in 1985, Dan established FRAMEWORK Video & Sound, a video production company specializing in documentary and educational programming. Although he had traveled to the Orient previously, it was his career as a filmmaker that took him to China in 1994 and again in 1995 to produce a documentary on tea.
