Welcome! Please feel free to share what you like (and don't like) about tea.

Not to mention teawares... some of us are teaware fiends, too... :twisted:

Welcome! This is a great place to come to be a TeaGeek, you can't see the eye rolls :roll: when you're online like you do when talking in person to non-tea lovers!

I don't feel like I introduced myself too well a couple months ago.
I'm a 22 year old male volunteer in the Peace Corps serving on several remote islands in Vanuatu. At the moment I am in Tanna where there is a hint of civilization.. and yes.. an internet!

I've been a tea fanatic since I was 15. I was driven to tea while studying East Asian (particularly Zen Buddhist) culture and the madness :twisted: all 'unfurled' from there.. hehe.. ;) I've been in Vanuatu with my girlfriend for a year now and, my, what I would give for a cup of Pu-Erh... be back soon, the kettle is whistling..

Yes, I did check Wikipedia to see if Vanuatu really exists. You will be relieved to know that it does.

Welcome ... er, it seems too far away to welcome you. Let's just say Good to hear from you.

LOL! Yeah I am surprised this place is on Earth, it is soooo much different from the States. Supposedly, Vanuatu is the happiest place on Earth. Seriously I wouldn't doubt it!

'Lukim yu' :)
