Hello from NY! (not really upstate...midstate?)

Postby toastedtoads » Oct 14th, '08, 08:23

Hello all. My name is Sarah. I've already been lurking (and posting a bit) in the puerh forum, but I figured I'd introduce myself here.

I actually currently work for a tea company but my interest has been starting to wander outside of the tea and teawares I can get at work. Specifically I am interested in puerh because we really don't have a selection at all, and oolongs just because I know there is far more out there and I'm only getting a piece. Because of the two types of teas I have started seriously researching, I am now very interested in gong-fu brewing and all the fun accessories that go along with that.

Other than that I have a one year old chocolate lab, a loving boyfriend of 9 years and an obsession with the color orange.

I look forward to getting to know you guys, especially the pu heads. ^_^

Hi toastedtoads and welcome to the forum. I am hoping your pu does not taste like toasted toads. :wink:

I see you found TeaDay! Please be sure to share what is in your cup with us AMAP.

I think Chocolate is my fav lab. You don't see many of them around, making them more special.
