Nordic teaholic says Hello!

by Väinämöinen » Mar 13th 19 1:13 am

Hi everybody from Finland!

First of all, thank you for this great forum! It has been big help and source of information for me. I recently got interested in tea when I decided to cut down coffee consumption and started learning about this world mainly through this forum and Mei Leaf videos in youtube. I was first like "yeah maybe I buy few green teas to my kitchen" and few weeks later from that point Im waiting for 5 different orders from UK, China and Japan. :lol: Gongfu stuff.. Pu'ers.. Japanese teas.. :roll:

I already bought gaiwan, but it had cracks inside, got refund, and placed order on new porcelain one.. It will be my first teaware. Can't wait! I figured out its best one to start with if the idea is to try different types of teas.

Cya in the forum and posts!

Thank you Andrew! The first tea that got me interested in tea was Gyokuro Tokiwa. Now just yesterday my yunnan sourcing order arrived, so Im trying new teas. 13 years aged Da Hong Pao Rock Oolong goes to top of my list of favourites too. What an experience! I got some semi aged sheng pu'ers also as samplers. I like pu'ers, especially sheng, but haven't tasted them enough to name some favourite out of them. So I'll just go with Gyokuro Tokiwa and Da Hong Pao rock oolong.

Do you have some favourites?

Hey Väinämöinen! Why yes! I have recently been enjoying the exploration of loose style Pu Erh. At heart, I'm a black tea fan, and enjoy finding different varieties to try. Though top of my list right now is the Balasun first flush Darjeeling, we just got as part of our new MastersTeas website. If you're a fan of Darjeeling this cannot be beat!
