This is a great community and resource on the Internet - I have been reading the posts for several months before finally decided to sign up and join in the discussion.
Living where I am, tea has always been part of daily life but never really in a conscious way. I began to take a more active and considered interest early last year after deciding it was a healthier and more reasonably priced alternative to wine. But then I discovered yixing-ware and only the health reason stills hold true...
It is still early in my tea journey and I drink pretty much everything - white tea, green tea, oolongs, pu erh, black teas.
Look forward to (eventually) being a useful member of the teachat community!
