Later today I'll make a proper introduction topic, but for now here goes:
How long have you been drinking tea?
Since I was a child. In Russia tea is a staple, we even had tea time at school. And at the time, nobody had teabags.
What was your first Tea?
It would have been a black loose leaf, but I was too young to remember the details.
What is your favorite Tea currently?
The best tea I've had was something called Hatimara Assam, purchased at a local tea shop that has since closed. Reading up on it a bit, I gather it was a lower-end tea (CTC, BOP), so I'm excited to try more.
What is your next purchase?
I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of a couple of orders... I tried to get some variety while not going overboard. I think I reached a nice compromise

Where is your favorite spot to brew up?
By a window, with lots of light, and that baked-by-the-sun feeling. I don't get this luxury often, though.
