Hello from Montana

I am a newbee here and am still fairly new to tea. Its funny because I have been making various pottery items for about 7 years along side a guy that makes nothing but teapots and tea ware but I never drank the stuff until a year ago. I actually would get mad when people suggested I drink tea when I had a cold. All I could think about was Lipton teabag tea my parents drank and thought no way! Then I was down in my little clay room in the basement adding details to something I was making and I had Modern Marvels come on the History channel. It was a show all about tea. I actually listened to it and when it was done I looked at my persian cat that insists on helping me make everything and said "damn, I need to drink some tea!"
So I tried some Yogi tea and liked it much more than Lipton :D and then discovered a real tea shop in Missoula that had leaf tea of different variety and I have been happy ever since. And I even have the teapot guy drinking it.

Anyway, I don't know much, but I know I love tea!

Welcome!

I saw your post on the teaware thread, your cups are awesome! I love the one with the eye-bolt handle.

You'll learn a lot about tea here, everyone is very generous with their knowledge.

Welcome! And also a big hello to your Persian cat, who is clearly your accomplice in tea as well as pottery. Cats make excellent accomplices in all things.

Shoot, perhaps Chip should consider having a TeaPet poll... a lot of people here have pets, and GeekgirlUnveiled even has a budgie named Matcha. Could be interesting!

I have no pets, unless you count the Anna's hummingbird that reproaches me bitterly whenever I happen to stray out on his apartment balcony (the location of his hummingbird feeder :wink: )

thanks, I am drinking out of it now. I am working on one that is going to look like an old gas can with a lid that has a spout and a handle to act as tripod feet to hold it upside down so I can set my mesh ball in it when I drink. Thats the plan anyway lol
