I'm very glad i found your forum where we can talk and share our thoughts about tea. I'm french and i share my life with a chinese woman.
Before moving in Shanghai, i came regularly to south China mainly for the last 9 years. Before my first visit, i knew nothing about teas.
My chinese family initiated me to Gongfu Cha, to local teas which were Tie Guanyin and Dancong Cha (a local Wulong from Guangdong Province). Since then, i've traveled a lot, met several chinese tea masters and farmers and tried excellent excellent teas.
I've been lucky enough to taste many excellent teas from Lao Pu Er to Taiping Hou Lui, through Jin Jun Mei and Zhen Shan Xiaozhong.
I love all of them in different ways. But in France i had not many friends to share my passion with.
I'm living in Shanghai now where i'm into import/export. I also opened one year ago an online shop in french to sale teas directly from Chinese producers. I'm not making a living out of it, but i feel glad each time i can share those great teas. I'm not here for spamming nor sale anything, just sharing with you my love for teas. At best, i could ask for some advice as you can learn about tea all life long.
At home, for my personal use, i've got plenty of Tie Guanyin (all kinds of) and Dan Cong, several old Pu Er, a beautiful Taiping Houkui, several Da Hong Pao, a small box of Jin Jun Mei and an altitude tea from Sichuan i guess (though i'm not sure).
Hope we'll share a lot of infos.
