A riddle for TeaDay...how did Sky live in Japan for 6 months and never set foot on the ground???


She was a baby, right?

Wow! Starting off with the good stuff! The Yukata Midori is one of my favorite teas, same as Chip, I believe. When your cold goes away, definitely ask Chip for some guidance brewing it– it is an amazing tea!

So answer the poll...and instead of discussing our ages (unless you want to), Henley also wanted to ask, what are you, a TeaMan or a TeaWoman. So, tell us your gender if you please.



I'm neither a TeaMan, nor a TeaWoman.

I am The TeaMAAn. And I pitty the fool.

This morning I started off with Fukamushi - Cha superior from Uji (hibiki-an).

In the late afternoon, I'm having an Uji Sencha called "Miyabi" from o-cha.com

Into the very early evening, I'm planning to engage life in adventure mode. I will be having a wonderful green oolong from Alishan Taiwan I think, which is is oh so satisfying (Tea from Taiwan).

Thats right, I figured if I get some daily sencha and drink that for a few days I could then prepare myself to be blown away by the Midori.

Can't Wait! :D

Me. Tea?

Any way ..

27, Mixed heritage: French and German almost exclusively on my dad's side, Welsh and Scottish mostly on my mother's with speculative other heritage.

I'm a TeaMan irl, but online does it really matter?

Let's see ... *checks join date* I've been drinking real tea since shortly after I joined Teachat. My samples just hadn't yet arrived.

I haven't had tea tonight yet, but the Mengyang Guoyan will be in yixing just after supper.

...yes, I am TeaMan!!! Currently fighting contaminants in tea. The world is a safer place. Careful, Bamboo. Calling yourself TeaMaan carries with it huge responsibilty.

Jack, I am on steep #4 of Yutaka Midori, one of my fav sencha. I am quite partial to Kagoshima prefecture sencha.

I still say Sky is a hawk or an eagle. :lol:

I'm 23, female, and descended from a long line of argumentative coffee-drinkers. My relatives tolerate my fascination with tea as a harmless quirk, provided that I take my coffee black.

Today started out with a sencha and a Tazo Zen teabag between classes since I forgot to restock my loose tea supply that is usually in my backpack.

I am 21, female, and a complete mutt heritage wise. I know I am at least 1/4 Polish with some Irish, English, Danish, and maybe some German. We keep getting conflicting information about the Danish and German parts so it gets confusing after a while.

I have been drinking tea on and off since I was younger. I am lucky enough to have a father who likes tea so we would have a pot of Earl Grey almost every night after dinner. I started drinking tea on my own through middle school and high school, ending up with a constant travel mug every morning somewhere in the 10th grade. It was at that time when I decided that even though my parents were die-hard coffee addicts, I would be a tea drinker. From there, the tea obsession got progressively worse though it took me a while to find that I could get loose tea online. Now, finding me without a tea mug nearby is an oddity.

I'm 31 y/o guy, mostly of Italian descent with a bit of other stuff mixed in.

Started off today with Yutaka Midori. Later I made some Long Jing. I'm about to embark on my second try at this Rougui. Hopefully I can coax out the cassia flavor that this tea is named after.

Nice to learn a bit about everyone. It is something we just never really take the time to do, so it is a nice change of pace. Tomorrow, a tea discussion will ensue.

So, Ding Gu Da Fang followed by Yutaka Midori...thinking about a 4th tea...that is a bonus for me.

People tell me I'm 22 years old but I don't feel 22! I've been through a lot in my life and I feel I should either be 50 or 12 :P lol Still such a kid at heart.

I am half-German/Irish/English and half-Arabic, though I am not too familar with Arabic culture since my father has not been in the picture often.
