Hello from Japan

by Aya » Jun 18th, '17, 00:57

Hi!
My name is Aya and I am from Japan.

How long have you been drinking tea?
From my childfood. As a Japanese, tea is part of daily life. I started learning tea ceremony (Japanese traditional tea ceremony, specifically school of Urasenke) when I was 12 years old and continued for 10 years. I fell in love with Taiwanese tea/ Chinese tea about 10 years ago and now enjoy oolong tea/kung fu tea every day.

What was your first tea?
Don't remember - probably grean tea or roasted green tea.

What is your favorite tea currently?
Taiwanese high mountain tea and Pouchong

What is your next purchase?
I'm now torn between Taiwanese teapot by 呉振達 (sorry I don't know how to spell his name in alphabet - that's one of the problem when I try to talk about tea/teaware in English) or early Yixing teapot.

What is your favorite spot to brew up?
In my dining :)

I look forward to lean from you and have great time with you:)
