Hello from Italy!

Postby Simone » Oct 7th, '11, 06:40

Hi!
Finally I've found a forum that talks about tea!
I hope to know new things about tea, especially about oolong and green tea, and the preparation of these.
I usually drink one cup of tea in the morning, and 2-3 cup of green or oolong in the afternoon.

Welcome, there are plenty of people who will talk of tea with you.

Whereabouts in Italy do you reside?

I love that shop, but I have to take one hour of train to go there, so I buy tea where I can (last time in internet, the Yunnan Sourcing).
I went there this summer (before leaving for India :D ) and I bought a lot of tea. The owner is very polite.
How do you know that shop?

Just searching the internet :lol:

I buy most of my tea from China - several sources including Ebay Dragon Tea House, Jing Tea Shop, Yunnan Sourcing amongst others, though I get my Dan Cong from California (Tea Habitat). I am always on the lookout for British and European suppliers.

I get a fair amount of tea from 3 British suppliers.
Wan Ling UK
Jing (UK)
Essence Of Tea.

I visit my girlfriend in Malaysia every year and bring tea back, and she comes to UK once each year, when I have to introduce her to different European countries. Italy is on our to do list, so If whilst on holiday, I could visit a tea shop. maybe this would be a good one!

Although there are many other directions that could be where you live.
2 of my all time favourite wines could perhaps be described as 1 hour from Rome :D

I cannot afford to drink them these days :evil:

Brunello Di Montalcino
Vino Nobile De Montepulciano :)

I'm very very lucky! :D
I'm from the south of Umbria, one of the best producing regions of wine in Italy! Probably you'll also like the "Rosso of Montefalco" and the "Sagrantino of Montefalco". :D
