Life-long tea drinker.

Science and engineering nerdy professional, currently located in the PNW.

Normally I slide in on a moonbeam, happy to join a convivial group with shared interests. I'm going low-key here, because I'm finishing up a couple of interesting projects that have been quite time consuming. Visits will be episodic.

Mum is a Glaswegian. So it goes that a love of tea is both culturally imbued and epi-genetic (an environmentally-induced, maternally-derived genetic characteristic passed on to offspring). Except that my sibs aren't tea-drinkers. *shrug*

Am a fan of certain single malts and whiskey blends from Scotland and Ireland.

I have a modest collection of Eastern teaware. Gong-fu isn't my style, but carefully prepared green teas in Yixing or Tokoname ware are enjoyed every bit as much as black tea taken in a distinctive Western porcelain tea set.

I'm a loyal fan of Staffordshire ceramics and fine porcelain. My signature tea set is Royal Doulton Glamis Thistle, a quaint, handpainted design that is much sought-after, equally tempered to stately luncheons replete with antique linens as a cream tea served in a peaceful cottage garden setting with like-minded company.

So I'll pull up a chair and set a spell, to study the offerings here, maybe serve up a factual tidbit or two alongside tea talk.

Hello and welcome Intuit, thanks for introducing yourself. :wink:

It sounds like your tea interests are rather diverse. Feel free to share some photos under Teaware/Show Off your Pots and Cups.

I am looking forward to sharing many cyber cups with you.

Greetings to fellow regional dwellers!

The moniker 'Intuit' relates to my avocation, resolving environmental technical puzzles.

The little bamboo yixing teapot is dedicated to brewing Formosa Oolong.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
