Cheers from the Pacific Northwest...

Hi all. I looked around a bit on this forum and posted a topic...guess it's time to submit my entry into the noob intro area.

I have been called a tea snob and tea pusher for several years... and I make no apologies for it. :- ) Most of the loose leaf I consume is acquired via the web and am partial to whites & greens for my daily doses, w/ some honeybush, chamomile, and a few others mixed in as well. Looking forward to learning and tasting more.

Cheers...

That is a tiny fraction of registered members btw. The memberlist displays only those who have actually posted.

There are likely around 50,000 registered members. I am thinking more.

And I usually see 10-20 Lurkers on the forum at a time. A lot of people just read our posts. I guess we must be interesting characters for them :twisted:

Funny in that I thought I knew a little about tea...but then you start reading the threads on this site and find out that you really do only know a little about tea...a very little. It's a very rainy evening in the Northwest so I'm enveloping myself in all that I don't know by reading some fine posts along w/ my friend, white peony.
