New To Forum, Just Saying Hi

Postby bronzebed » Jun 20th, '08, 13:15

hello everyone. i'm new to the forum, so i thought i'd introduce myself. i'm a big tea fan, have been for many many years but i haven't really delved into too much information about it with the exception of what i've picked up along the way when buying teas. right now i'm in a life transition and while figuring out what i wanted to do next, it came to me that i should do something involving tea. so i've been trying to learn as much as possible so that i can open up a tea house.

in general i lean towards white and green teas, though i do branch out. the only teas that i just can't get into are pu-erhs. as much as i wanted to like pu-erh teas i just can't get into them.

You don't get off so light on this form: Chinese greens or Japanese greens? Which are your favorite vendors for these?

If you continue to dislike puerh you run a big risk of being banned!! :wink:

well, i love all green teas but i find myself buying more japanese greens. i like to buy my teas from local stores. i haven't made too many purchases off of the internet yet. there is a store near me and the guy imports some of his teas directly from japan and he likes to push those teas and i end up buying them. its the only tea store i have been to that has the estates listed and the guy knows a lot about each tea.

believe me, i have tried with pu-erhs. i really have. maybe i just need to find one that is a bit more mellow.

thanks for the warm welcome. :D

Most of us would love to be able to buy locally, but there just ain't many locals to buy from in the USA, unless you count Starbucks and the supermarkets.

*shudders at the thought of starbucks tea*

i feel really lucky to have such a great tea place near me. i'm going to have to get a lot more familiar with internet options, especially wholesalers, though if i plan on opening up a tea house.
