Greetings from Adagio’s new insider in Europe!

Postby criteaque » Jan 8th, '08, 09:27

Dear all,

It’s a pleasure to finally be part of such a vibrant community of tea enthusiasts! My name is Stepas and I am looking after Adagio operations on the Old Continent. I’m currently based in London and hope to gain many converts in countries where gourmet tea is still a rather unfamiliar concept. It’s surprising that even in a country such as Britain, where "tea time" is part of country’s cultural identity (in the same way as the Queen), the overwhelming majority of tea is drunk in the form of "dust" - or as the locals call it "British Rail" (talk about clichés).

As far as my preferences for tea go, I have to admit that I’m still a relative rookie in this respect (my drink of choice being still water), but generally enjoy oolong and green teas. Hope to learn more about the various nuances from such a passionate and knowledgeable crowd here! (I already had a chance to roam through some very interesting posts)

I am also looking forward to an increased participation from our European visitors in voicing their opinion and queries, in order to make this exchange about tea a truly global thing.

Looking forward to seeing you all in TeaChat!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I think there’s always room in Adagio’s posse, especially for "gatekeepers" like Chip and Mary 8)

By the way, British Rail is usually drunk with 3 spoons of sugar and a healthy dose of milk, in order to enhance its gourmet taste :lol:

Looking forward to contribute to this wonderful forum.

Cheers!

I should have said hello a long while ago. This is a horrid breach of my draconian 19th Century moral code. I cry your pardon.

Great to have you with us!
