Hello,

I guess I should start by saying that I live in the south east United States (atleast for now).

like almost any kind of tea, my favorites being white and green. I especially like the Japanese green teas such as Sencha and Gyokoru. I would like to get into Pu Erh tea.

I don't really know know what else to say...

Is that a death threat?

I actually have tentative plans to move to the Seattle area soon. I really like Washington.

Thanks for the welcomes, everyone.

Teachat: where threats come DEATHSTEAMED.

only kidding bud. your choice to move to Washington is a wise one.

Washington is great, but a little more south (what she said) is the jackpot.

A little more south? As in Oregon?

The area I was looking at is around the city of Monroe, if you know where that is.

rosenkraftlos, hmmm, name just rolls right off the tongue.

Anyway, welcome to another Japanese tea fan!!! I love sencha first...I have no idea what comes next.

Anyway, if you ever visit Fuka's town, he will be the guy with his mouth wide open displaying a mouthful full of vivid green fukamushi leaf...stick around long enough and you will know what I mean.

umm... ok...

Rosenkraftlos is a German word that loosely translates to "rose of blood".

Actually, it would be more like "strengthless rose(s)," considering that nowhere is the word for "blood" included in 'rosenkraftlos.' I suppose it could be a figurative meaning of which I'm unaware.

I suppose I could be wrong, but I believe that "kraftlos" has a secondary meaning "of blood".

I could be wrong, I only know some German, I am not a fluent speaker.

OK, I'll come out with it.

Every time I see your handle, I think rosencrantz. But that reminds me of one of the coolest shows I've ever seen, which is a good thing.
