Yes, I have two friends who I have regular contact with. I hope to someday enjoy a cup of tea with them in person! There are others, whom I have had very friendly and enjoyable contact with as well. Every correspondence I have ever had on teachat has been very positive.
I wasn't planning on making friends on teachat, but am so glad it has worked out that way. I had never been a believer in internet forums. However, I learned quickly that there is a big difference between a tea forum and say something like myspace or eharmony!
This morning, I drank green peach tea from a tea swap. This afternoon, I will have some green sencha/matcha tea that my husband just bought from Costco.
Have a great day, everyone!
