Apart from this being just another intro, I would like to find out something along the way.
What is it about tea that makes us want to convert other people to better teas?
I've just started into green teas(and *LOVE* them now, btw), but yet I strongly want to convert my family into being tea connoisseurs - whether black or green. For instance, my dad tends to drink coffee and a lot of Lipton iced tea(black), but I have this strong urge(and/or obsession) to get him into liking especially green teas, or at least a quality black tea..
Why is that?
Is it the caffeine, the 'ritual' of making a good green/black tea, the 'snobby' feeling of going for better tasting teas, or what???
What is it about tea that seems to make many of us want to make many more 'pod' people?!?
