Hello All,

New to the site but haven't posted anything so I figured it was about time. Have been drinking oolong tea and green tea all my life but haven't ventured out into anything new. Guess its about due to try other things. Just wanted to say hi to everyone

Well being from Taiwan i've drank loose leaf oolong's all my life. Basically whatever was around the house. Japanese friends started to get me to drink the matcha stuff which i like but its kinda boring. Just wanted something new and exciting. Any good suggestions would be helpful.

What kind of teas are you looking to try?

Other oolongs? China makes some good Wuyi oolong, it's definitely a force to be reckoned with. I enjoy the Qi Lan organic Wuyi from Rishi-Teas.

Greens maybe? I wouldn't exactly call Japanese greens exciting, but they are definitely my favorite. Matcha is one of them, but sencha is wonderful, and there's a deep steamed version of sencha called fukamushi which is to die for.

Heh...you called Matcha Boring =] You'll have a lot of fun here with some of the green tea nazi's.

Glad to have an oolong man on board, so...seeing as you're from Taiwan....ever been to the Tung Ting Mountain?

If Tung Ting is the same as Dong Ding, then it most definitely is.

Dong Ding mountain, Nantou county, central Taiwan.

I'm wrong again... :D I knew the dong ding/tung ting relation, just never thought it was an actual mountain for some reason.

Hello, new friends! I'm brand new to this forum too, but have been a tea addict ever since my mom taught me a spot of milk in tea is a cure-all for anything. Recently took a marketing job in DC and will need the caffeine to get thru the long days! This is a wonderful tool, and man oh man, I cannot wait to begin tea-talkin.

Green Tea Nazi's huh. A little scared to post now. :lol:
Not really looking for anything in particular just something new to try. What are everyone's favorite?

Tomasini, just got back from Taiwan a few weeks back and brought some Li-Shan Oolong back. Its good for my taste, but dunno about other ppls.
