How long have you been drinking tea? What was your first Tea?
I have been drinking various herbal brews since I was a toddler. Our family used to pick dog rose fruits, lime tree blossoms and other stuff which we dried and occasionally drank. In the last years of my primary school (10 years ago) I had trouble waking up every morning so I made myself a big cup of strong black tea each day (okay, it was partially because my father was heavy tea drinker at the time so drinking tea was a "grown up" thing to do
) Then for few years I didn't care much about tea until few months ago, when I was given some mao feng. I started drinking it regularly while I was working and soon I found myself obsessed with tea culture and tea in general.What is your favorite Tea currently?
Since I am quite new to tea, it is hard for me to say. At the moment I like Chinese greens (namely dragonwell) and darker oolongs.What is your next purchase?
Some good sencha. I have tried it before but failed to brew a decent cup. Now I feel is the time to give it (and myself) a second chance. So either that or dongfangmeiren.Where is your favurite spot to brew up?
In my room, in my improvised tea corner. A low table, electric kettle, an interesting root in a corner (for decoration), a bowl for waste water and leaves, a cup and a cheap gaiwan. It is lovely to sit there on the floor when it rains outside with a cup in your hand.
