Hello TeaChatters!
I'm new to loose tea and have really enjoyed reading the posts on TeaChat and have learned a lot so far. I'm looking forward to learning even more about tea from all of you!

Thanks, Victoria!

A few months ago I got the large-sized IngenuiTEA with the black tea sampler. I loved almost all of the teas and seem to prefer the teas from India, and Oolong. Right now Irish Breakfast is my favorite hot tea (but I HATED English Breakfast, is that strange?) and Ginger Peach is my fave iced.

I love all of the photos that you and others have posted on the TeaDay forum. You should produce a calendar or book, they are all beautiful!

Oolong? *ears perk up* Have you tried the oolong sampler? You also may like the peach oolong (but stay away from the others, shhhhhh)

Yes, they are just outstanding! Chip is looking into a special area for preserving them. We'll see where it goes from there!

Both my real name and my nickname are out of the ordinary. My mom has called me Geeber since I was little ... I have no idea why, some kind of motherly torture? :lol:

Eastree, I hope your sister likes her unusual name, it's a good old-fashioned one. My grandma's name was Vera so I've always felt honored to have that name.

Thanks for all of the welcomes, I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy!

Victoria,
That's a great suggestion. I'll order that next time. I'm not much into flavored teas, but for some reason the peach hits me just right. I'll get a sample of the peach oolong as well. Thanks!

Well, with nicknames, anyway! If the drug reference had existed then, I'm sure she would have thought of some other weird name! :roll:
