I joined TC recently and, shame on me, only just now spotted the 'Introductions to TeaChat' thread. So I'll try and make up for it.
Greetings from Yixing!
I grew up in Germany and wasn't much of a tea drinker back then, but every time I moved, I somehow ended up being exposed to tea and tea culture more and more. I lived and worked in England for several years and there I already started to enjoy my tea on a daily basis. Interest in the subject grew, and ever since I moved to China a few years back there was no stopping me & tea.
I'm glad I've found this forum, thanks to a link on twitter.
