Hi tea people

by snafu » Jan 16th, '09, 17:26

Hello from Vancouver.

I've been lurking these forums for a few years now so I've already benefitted much from your collective wisdom - discovered a few of my favourite teas here and I've long enjoyed the "Show off your teaware" thread. I finally decided to create an account and participate a little, though I'm not sure how much I have to add.

I'm pretty much obsessed with sencha, gyokuro, and greenish oolongs, but I find something to enjoy about most tea types. Recently I had my socks knocked off by an aged sheng which has inspired an interest in pu'erh, a new direction for me. I'm also very interested in pottery and teaware in general, though my collection is modest by TeaChat standards. Other than tea, I drink a lot of fresh mint tisane (grow my own), and I love coffee/espresso.

Anyway, nice to "meet" you all.

Welcome, there are a few coffee drinkers here who love tea just as much or more! Not to mention the wine drinkers and Malt Whisky drinkers.

Welcome! I visited your city a few years ago and fell in love with it.
And you can always mosey over to Victoria and have high tea.

Welcome! I think you can add much if you care to. Don't think all Teachatters has as much teaware as a few maniac people - no names mentioned 8)

I'll add my 'welcome' to the collection.

Feel free to chime in on a few salient threads and help expand our little slice of tea culture.

Hello

by Stormy_Tea_Cup » Jan 18th, '09, 05:19

Hi, I'm new in this forum, and I consider myself a newbie in the Tea Culture as well. I'm so new and inexperienced that I don't even have a preference for a particular type of tea.

All I know is I like tea. And that is about as much knowledge I possess about this wonderful world.

I hope to rely on your erudition and lore.

And please excuse my poor knowledge of english.
