How long have you been drinking tea?
I grew up in the tropics, so tea was not a frequent thing. Other than Crystal Light iced tea in the summer. I know, sacrilege, but I love the stuff. At any rate, I seem to remember Sleepy Time by Bigelow about as far back as I can go. So, yes, tisanes and fake iced tea in my youth, the occasional green or jasmine tea at Asian restaurants throughout my teenage years, and a whole lot of Moroccan Mint, Green Tea with Lemon, and Constant Comment through college. I didn't get into good quality, loose leaf tea as a hobby until last year. Depending on how you define "drinking tea", it's either been my entire life, or just a year. What was your first Tea?
If tisanes count, Sleepy Time. If not, then nondescript greens at restaurants. What is your favorite Tea currently?
The Sun Dried Jing Shan sold by Verdant Tea. It is GOOD.What is your next purchase?
Hmm. Some Rou Gui, I think. Not sure where I'll get it, just know I need some.Where is your favorite spot to brew up?
The kitchen. I wouldn't call it my favourite spot, but I live in a cramped studio apartment. The kitchen is the only spot where I can plug in the electric kettle and still have room to make the tea gong fu style.
