How long have you been drinking tea?
My whole life, mostly herbal teas(tisanes) as a kid, I started drinking real loose leaf tea four years ago.

What was your first Tea?
My first real, loose leaf tea was a High Mountain Taiwan Oolong(Shanlinxi) which opened my eyes.

What is your favorite Tea currently?
High Mt. Oolongs and Puerh(both sheng and shou) but I tend to drink all kind of teas. However greens and whites rarely find their way to my gaiwan :) .

What is your next purchase?
Some kind of aged sheng from a local vendor in Taipei, Taiwan.

Where is your favorite spot to brew up?
My tea corner on my large study/computer table if I am brewing, for drinking I think sampling/trying teas at tea shops or tea farmers is the best.

Hey Teachat. Been a lurker for a while but decided to chime in. I’m originally from Iowa USA, but recently moved to Surrey UK.

How long have you been drinking tea?
Since I was in middle school. More seriously the past five years.

What was your first Tea?
Stash winter mint, or something thereabouts. First loose leaf was gunpowder from the ... Frontier Coop I think?

What is your favorite Tea currently?
I’ve just discovered Clipper Organic a couple weeks ago. Not sure it’s ‘real tea,’ but I’m enamoured nevertheless! Wonderful with digestive biscuits, and makes my cupboard smell awesome!

What is your next purchase?
Probably sencha from The Teamakers of London.

Where is your favorite spot to brew up?
No place but my place right now. The water’s hard, though, so it’s not the best.

Hello there Julia,
I guess we can agree that Taiwan is one of the best places to find and enjoy good quality tea :-)

Hello,

Ive been a lurker for a while and thought I would register and post.
Hope to gain some knowledge here. Very new to Chinese teas but learning...not as quickly as I would hope but to be expected.

How long have you been drinking tea?
Been drinking Yorkshire for a loooong time. But have VERY recently started being interested in Chinese tea and GongFu style brewing.
Really love the tradition and purity of the teas and look forward to trying a lot more in the future.

What kind of tea do you drink?
As a recent convert to Chinese style teas, I have some Oolongs and Pu'er coming in the mail right now.
im literally brand new to this side of the tea world.

How do you prepare your tea?
Teapot to GongFu...everything has its place.

What tea knowledge are you interested in exploring right now?
Chinese teas ! So much variety and information to learn but its fun.

What factors lead you to delve into the world of tea, and what is keeping you there?
Mei Leaf youtube videos really piqued my interest and I have dove down the rabbit hole ever since.

What is your location?
Greater Toronto Area

Best

Emil
