About Me

Up Close and Personal with Neldon

Hello friends! My name is Neldon and I'm a tea-addict. I'm 24 and from Utah, an area where tea drinkers are about as rare as an actual gushu puerh or mother-tree Da Hong Pao. I've been drinking tea for about 10 years now, but only started blogging in 2021 as a way to share my thoughts on different teas with the community and as a way for me to combine my passion for anthropology, education, and tea. When I'm not working (I work as the curator of a local museum), you can almost always find me relaxing, listening to music and drinking tea.

What can you expect from me?

Reviews on teas, posts on the history of tea industries around the globe, educational posts on various topics I wish I had known when I was starting out drinking tea, and much more!

I believe that being humorous, candid, and authentic are key to revitalizing tea and the tea industry for a newer audience. My blog is a place where celebrating one’s personality, sense of humor, and heart are at the core of my site’s mission. 

I look forward to getting to know all of you and sharing my passion with you! Happy drinking, friends!

What are Neldon's Qualifications?

I am a certified Chinese Tea Specialist with expertise in education, product reviews, and investigative reporting within the tea industry. Through my blog, Tea With Neldon, I engage 5,000-8,000 monthly readers with educational content and consulting services. One of my notable projects includes an investigative report on the Vietnamese tea industry, exposing external market manipulation. My research on North American tea drinkers contributes valuable industry insights. I'm passionate about sustainability, climate change, and transparency in the tea trade.
