Dr Tan is an over trained and over worked Western medical Doctor. He has been involved in Tea since his wife decided to pursue Cha Dao 茶 道 professionally. Traveling with his wife to visit Tea Masters and various tea regions, he was bitten by the tea bug. Since 1994 he has tried to be the perfect Tea Person 茶 人 to the very substantial annoyance of his wife. The good doctor’s eccentric calligraphy and painting of Bodhidharma 达 摩 has been exhibited and collected by his eclectic group of friends and patrons. He studied Chan 禅 under the late Chan Master Yu Dan 鬻 亶 and practices Rinzai Zen 临 济 禅. He is currently the assistant janitor of Tea Bone Zen Mind.
