Salutations from Michigan!

Postby mountainhugger » Mar 4th, '11, 00:34

I've been lurking for a couple weeks now, quite substantially, and thought I'd stop being the wallflower and say hello!

I'm an editor at a university here in Michigan, and I love to hike, rollerblade, and randomly stop to watch birds/trees/clouds/etc. I've been drinking tea from conception, though my mom's favorite was always Lipton. I still enjoyed it quite a bit, all through my teenage years!

Once I moved out of the house I moved to Twinnings and Numi. As the years progressed I started sampling bulk teas from The Tea Spot and Rishi - the most recent being their Pu-Erh Tou Cha of which i adore.

A friend recently showed me his yixing pots and gave me a sample of TYG (which I'm drinking a second infusion of now).

I've been browsing many many many posts here over the last couple weeks, as well as reading as much as I could at HOJO and other sites.

I'm excited to learn more about fine teas and to share some of these experiences with everyone.

Cheers!

Welcome MountainHugger!

I'm fairly new as well and it sure is an interesting group. I'm definitely learning a lot about tea and have a growing list of new teas to try! :)

Look forward to chatting with you!
