Hello all! I am a student at the Ohio State University. I have read a lot around here on TeaChat and finally decided to join. If you couldn't tell by my name, I am a runner. I was introduced to tea about 8 months ago, and I can't believe I had gone my entire life missing out on something so great. Running is my top passion, but tea is becoming a closer and closer 2nd. I'm a green tea drinker; I've been exposed to other types (black, some herbals here and there), but I always find myself gravitating back to green. I've tried various types of green, and I absolutely love japanese greens (probably due to my tea mentor being a gyokuro drinker). I'm about to purchase my first kyusu, and I'm really excited! I look forward to learning a lot here!!
