I'm actually kind of glad this desire to learn and sample more tea didn't come until I got my job. If I spend this much in school? Ouch. I'm right now trying to hold off on buying some oolong tea since I just bought a whole assortment of other loose teas and need to practice some discipline.
It's cool to find a student into tea though.
I got made fun of quite a bit by my boozehound friends when they caught me with my Earl Grey. Oh well, my liver could take their livers on any day.
