How long have you been drinking tea?

I've had tea before when I was younger and it was mostly an on and off thing that only happened when I went to this one restaurant. I didn't really start getting serious about tea until November of 2012 but that was mostly bagged stuff. It was in 2015 that I started getting into loose leaf tea and while I still drink some bagged tea (because I like tasting all kinds of teas and because I have a scrapbook for tags and bags lol)

What was your first Tea?

I guess some generic bagged green tea at that one restaurant from my childhood. The other bagged was a mangosteen blend and then I had blended teas.

What is your favorite Tea currently?

Right now its an Earl Grey blend that I really like and a black blend with caramel flavour.

What is your next purchase?

Probably Earl Grey Lavender and Earl Grey Bella Luna I hope. At least for right now unless something else catches my eye.

Where is your favorite spot to brew up?

Right now I brew inside but then I drink outside on my balcony, or inside in the living while watching my soaps on Netflix.

How long have you been drinking tea?
As long as I can remember, but I only really started getting into teas about 4 years ago.

What was your first Tea?
It was probably some sweetened Luzianne black tea or something. My first good tea was probably some matcha at a tea ceremony when I was pretty young.

What is your favorite Tea currently?
I've got some Jin Xuan Oolong that I really enjoy

What is your next purchase?
I really shouldn't be buying any teas. I have way more than I can drink and I'm on a college budget. I am running low on chai though...

Where is your favorite spot to brew up?
Sitting on the floor in my room with my tea tray.

How long have you been drinking tea? Oh geez...this ones tough. I can remember as a child, my mother always (and even to this day) carries tea everywhere she goes.

What was your first Tea? Lipton brewed in the yard under the sun in a giant Glass container.

What is your favorite Tea currently? Ito-En Ryokucha

What is your next purchase? Probably a gunpowder green of some kind, or a nice Irish Breakfast.

Where is your favorite spot to brew up? On the porch, watching the birds eat & play in the bird bath! 🕊️
