Hello I am 27 wife/mother/homemaker from North Dakota.
How long have you been drinking tea?
Well i remember having the retail store bags as a child. I started drinking loose leaf about !+ years ago and still use some bags.
What was your first Tea?
I remember being quite young buying the Celestial Seasonings and collecting the tins.
What is your favorite Tea currently?
I'm just getting started so it is Organic & Pure's Green tea with lemon.
What is your next purchase?
maybe Adiago special blend type named squirrel
Where is your favorite spot to brew up?
Hi started drinking tea when I was young but i have soon learned I'm used to what would be called the filings/dust tea. Where I am from the only choices are the supermarket run of the mill. I remember in high school i had a friend bring me earl grey from London and that was the first i know there was something better. My latest interest in tea started because of my sister in law is from Singapore and she has given me teas that her parents have sent over from Singapore. Sadly almost none of them have anything in English writing. I have the packets and if somehow i could get someone from online to tell me what they say so i know what I'm drinking (and enjoying much), if someone wants a challenge I am a bit timid about buying teas online afraid of where to start and what kinds to try.
I have very basic limited ideas on tea and want to learn.
I struggle with preparing. My sister in law showed me how her family steeps tea. However, this still leaves me in the dark on how long (general guideline) should i steep for each kind of tea(white, green, etc)? Also what amount should i measure to prepare for 1 cup of tea?
One last question and i will stop rambling:
Three of teas i was given have the following labels:
Sow Mee Tea
What are they each exactly? I looked online but found very little. thanks hope to gain much from everyone buy being in this teachat!
