The blog is authored by Alex Zorach, best known in the tea world for being the founder and editor of RateTea.com, an online community for tea ratings and reviews. The blog is presented as "Tea, with an Ecological Approach".
Motivation for the New Blog
The new blog has a variety of motivations, including a change to the Wordpress blogging platform, away from Blogger, owing in large part to superior spam control by the Wordpress theme, and a desire to create a coherent theme or subject for the blog, a single name and identity that unifies the eclectic nature of the topics covered on the blog. The new blog also features a brighter and more modern look-and-feel.
Teacology will feature both new, original posts, and reworked old posts from Alex Zorach's tea blog. In contrast to the old blog, the newer blog will be updated less frequently, and will have longer, more in-depth posts that have greater care put into them before publishing. Although Alex Zorach will publish tea reviews primarily on RateTea, Teacology will also feature book and product reviews from the tea industry.
