I am new and not so new to TeaChat.
I have read the forums off and on during the past years. I had been hesitant of becoming a member due to some of the "banter" of some members. Unfortunately sometimes it goes beyond that as I found out the hard way.
I also like the diversity among the teachat members and vendors.
I grew up with tea and have loved tea from day one and like anything from herbal infusions to pu erh to matcha.
My favourite is TGY. I drink it everyday without fail. Sometime with short sometimes with long steepings. On very hot days I like to cool it off a little...very refreshing.
I like Sheng Pu erh but I am not too fond of Ripe Pu erh. Personal preference.
I like black/red teas. My favourite of these are Yi Xing black tea and currently the mini cake from YS .
I am very thankful to teachat though, for all the information in its forums.
It is how I found out about many types of Teapots, vendors and of course tea.
I hope to learn so much more in the future. Glad to be here.
