Hello, my name is Xiumei (Shyou-May), which means beautiful and bright in Chinese.

About Me

I was born in Fujian, China, and moved to the United States at the age of 13. Growing up with half of my life in the East, and a half in the West, I was able to experience and taste some of the unique adventures from both continents. The blog Half Coffee Half Tea is inspired by my cultural background, and intended to share some of my discoveries with you.

The Blog

Half Coffee Half Tea is a lifestyle website that invites the readers to take a moment in their life to discover, create and take adventures. If you’ve got a few minutes for a cup of coffee or tea, you can read content including travel guides, interviews, food recipes, craft projects and fashion inspirations.

Thank you for your visit!
