I've been lurking the site for about a month now gleaning bits of tea wisdom about this and that, and decided that I should make myself known!
A bit of info about me- I'm a scientist by trade (hence the name) who recently moved to SF for work. I first tried tea two years ago when visiting my girlfriend's family in Taiwan. I was so blown away by all the different gao shan oolongs that I was able to try that I changed plans to take a day trip to Ping Lin, and ended up taking home three kilos of tea for family and myself, in addition to a modest Yixing pot. I have since tried to branch out little by little, and tried my first sheng pu'er and longjing a few days ago which has only fueled my enthusiasm even more!
Hope to learn from everyone, and hopefully contribute what I can do this great communitea! (appologies, puns are my weakness)
Your willing supplicant,
