New Year Toast

The Skoal Project just published Roy's photo in its series of food and beverage luminaries making a toast with aquavit. Calling Roy "a purveyor of some of the best rarer-than-rare Chinese teas," the project blog notes that he's "an ordained daoist priest" who "helped restore one of the oldest Tang Dynasty tea sites in Zhejiang, China" and "specializes in aged puerh tea."

The project describes its aim as "discovering something of people’s nature by how they handle the ritual of the skoal." We say a toast is a great way to kick off an exciting new year in 2010!
