Hello from Vancouver.
I've been lurking these forums for a few years now so I've already benefitted much from your collective wisdom - discovered a few of my favourite teas here and I've long enjoyed the "Show off your teaware" thread. I finally decided to create an account and participate a little, though I'm not sure how much I have to add.
I'm pretty much obsessed with sencha, gyokuro, and greenish oolongs, but I find something to enjoy about most tea types. Recently I had my socks knocked off by an aged sheng which has inspired an interest in pu'erh, a new direction for me. I'm also very interested in pottery and teaware in general, though my collection is modest by TeaChat standards. Other than tea, I drink a lot of fresh mint tisane (grow my own), and I love coffee/espresso.
Anyway, nice to "meet" you all.
