Welcome to Oh, How Civilized
Hey! I’m Jee and welcome to my blog. As you can guess, I really like tea. Afternoon tea, tea and food pairings, tea tastings… I think you get where this is going.
- I’m a certified Tea Sommelier.
- I was quoted in the NY Times about afternoon tea!
- I’m a full-time blogger (yes, such a thing exists!).
- Before blogging full time, I was a Creative Director and freelancer, having worked for brands like People, InStyle, and Essence.
About Oh, How Civilized
Oh, How Civilized is all about afternoon tea, delicious tea based recipes, and basically making tea accessible.
Tea shouldn’t be intimidating and I definitely don’t think you need to choose between coffee or tea. (I drink as much coffee as I do tea.)
- My goal is to make easy, delicious tea recipes.
- Provide honest afternoon tea reviews.
- Each recipe is tested multiple times until I’m completely happy with it.
- The name, Oh, How Civilized came from me uttering those exact words (in a terrible, terrible British accent) each and every time I went for afternoon tea.
- The blog first started out on Squarespace in 2012. I moved it to WordPress in 2015.
- In December 2018, I hit a huge milestone when I got to 100,000 monthly pageviews! Here’s how I did it: How I Got My Food Blog to 100K Monthly Pageviews.
