I am 66 and just now discovered loose leaf tea brewing. Always been a coffee drinker and still enjoy a latte made with Jamaican Blue Mountain. I have a damaged heart but 25 % still works. I have my own "bucket list" and now tea is on it. When I was young I was in Special Forces and put in 3 tours in Vietnam. I had a SFC Binas who made tea every morning EVEN when inserted into N. Vietnam. I understand now and I too appeciate tea in the AM.

Hey welcome!! Loose leaf is a whole world unto itself! You will find lots of info here and plenty of helpful advice.

Isn't Lexington right across the river from Madison?
:o)

I could say yes and not sound so dumb. ;O)

But no, I thought Lexington was on the river. My father's family was from Madison; although my Dad was born in Louisville.

Welcome :D
I also came from coffee to loose leaf tea, and then I discovered this forum. Don't miss coffee much :)
