I am 66 and just now discovered loose leaf tea brewing. Always been a coffee drinker and still enjoy a latte made with Jamaican Blue Mountain. I have a damaged heart but 25 % still works. I have my own "bucket list" and now tea is on it. When I was young I was in Special Forces and put in 3 tours in Vietnam. I had a SFC Binas who made tea every morning EVEN when inserted into N. Vietnam. I understand now and I too appeciate tea in the AM.

Hey welcome!! Loose leaf is a whole world unto itself! You will find lots of info here and plenty of helpful advice.

Isn't Lexington right across the river from Madison?

Madison Co. Is across the river to the south. Were you meaning the county? Jon

I could say yes and not sound so dumb. ;O)

But no, I thought Lexington was on the river. My father's family was from Madison; although my Dad was born in Louisville.

I also came from coffee to loose leaf tea, and then I discovered this forum. Don't miss coffee much :)
