Hi from Mississippi!

Postby caradrake » Feb 6th, '08, 22:43

Hiyas! I'm Cara from Mississippi. My friend Rob gave me a sampler set of teas a week ago, and I am loving them! He sent me here to read up about teas. I do have to say, I never realized there was so much to drinking tea! I've always liked some herbal teas (mainly peppermint), and sweet / iced teas. But unsweet tea? Heck, no!

Ah well. At least I have corrected such a shameful ignorance at a relatively young age. I do not have to go through life completely unaware of the wonderful teas out there.

Right now I am drinking my second cup of Jasmine #12 from Adagio. I love the aroma and I love the taste!

I can't wait to try out the rest.

Hi Cara! Welcome to teachat :)

I'm a bit of a newbie myself, too...there sure are a lot of teas, aren't there? If you're into mints, you might want to give adagio's "foxtrot" a try...it's chamomile and mint.

Everyone's very sweet here, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Keep an eye out for the new teaday polls each day, and feel free to jump in the instant message chat to say hi.

Hi Cara! Yes, most people around here are very nice... watch out for that "padre" guy though. (Freak!) :twisted:

Welcome Cara...and Fox, too.
Great choice of Jasmine #12! It's my absolute favorite tea, hot or cold, slightly sweet. Sometimes I even add a pinch of mint leaves. And the leaves generally make 3 really good infusions.
Enjoy your new-found love of tea.

OMG, I would think twice before consuming anything THAT guy gave you!

He seems a little sketchy to me. :lol:

Yep, watch out for anyone named Rob or Padre from Mississippi!!!

Welcome to TeaChat, Cara. I hope you are planning on sticking around here a while.

Good advice, Fox!!! Stop by the TeaDay forum located under Teas, tell us what you are drinking today and vote in the daily TeaPoll!!! We usually have a daily topic to discuss there.

Wheeee Cara.

Hopefully you'll prove more enlightened than your brute of a husband.
