hi! my name is sean, i live in california, and i am a tea fiend. been sipping maniacally for about two years, been reading this forum and related blogs (some of y'all write real nice), for about half that time. sencha tends to be my leaf of choice right these days, with matcha running a close second. it's good to be aboard the board, and i'm looking forward to chatting with you guys about our shared obsessions.

Welcome Sean!!! I am a newbie too and also 'listened' for a while before I joined this forum! Everyone is full of soooo much tea knowledge it's almost disgusting...only kidding :) It's the only way to learn and I certainly picked the best forum for that!

I know you will feel right at home, I certainly did!
