Hi All

Hello all. I've been lurking around here for a while so I thought it was high time that I popped in and said hello. Interestingly enough, it seems I started reading a couple of Teachat's esteemed member's blogs before I visited the forum, so I know I'm in good company.

I'd always been a bagged tea drinker, but I was introduced to "real" tea a couple of years ago by a couple of friends from China. Ironically, now my teas of choice are Japanese greens but I do enjoy plentiful quantities of Earl Grey for breakfast every morning.

Cheers to all!

Hi jjbraun, your ownership of a kyusu opens the door for your admittance to TeaChat!!! Congrats. :lol:

Seriously, welcome to the best tea forum in the USA. I started with Chinese tea and have also moved mostly to Japanese greens as well. Someone is sending me a sample of Japanese black tea, that should be...interesting.

What Japanese tea do you like most, sencha? There are many fukamushi fans here.

Thanks Chip. I must admit that is not my kyusu, but I do own one. Hmmm... Japanese black tea??? Hopefully you will let us know how it is.

I do prefer sencha (usually karigane) for an everyday tea. I, too, am a fan of fuka and I even enjoy gyokuro on occasion. The only Japanese teas I can say I'm not a fan of are houjicha and genmaicha.

I have many fans. 8)

I, as well, started with Chinese greens before finding the true sencha-god. She (looks like a beautiful Japanese woman) told me that the first step to enlightenment is owning a kyuusu. So I congratulate you. You are already on your way towards a heaven where beautiful women make you heavenly sencha all day long.
