Hello from Seattle

by hopeofdawn » Dec 14th, '10, 16:12

Hello everyone--I've been lurking around the board for a while, soaking up the wealth of tea knowledge here, and finally decided to sign up officially, since my tea obsession doesn't seem to be going away! :)

I'm just south of Seattle, and a pretty new tea drinker--I've only started drinking it seriously for about two years, ever since a friend introduced me to a wonderful local tea shop and how to brew tea 'properly' (i.e. gongfu method instead of stewing grocery store green tea for 3-5 minutes at a time). Who knew the bitter, grassy-tasting stuff I'd been drinking could be so good when brewed properly? Thankfully even coffee-obsessed Seattle has enough tea shops to satisfy my new addiction--though the shop that introduced me to tea will always be my favorite ...

I don't have any one tea that I love above all others, though there are Wuyi oolongs and a few green teas that come close. I look forward to learning more about all of them from everyone on this board, however!

Thanks, and will do! Don't worry, just 'Hope' is fine--my username is an older one, and probably a bit cheesy, but oh well--it's what I'm used to. :D
