Still 26 and also several nationalities, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and there more mixed in which i'm not totally sure.

Currently trying again gyokuro hojicha, interesting tea, still a bit of green color left in leaves. Liquor is bright even when using almost 1g/30ml.

A 25 year old student of Polish nationality living by the Baltic Sea.

Trying various teas now, but enjoying especially black and yellow.
In my country coffee is much more popular and although I enjoy it , nothing compares to tea;)

Sipping Simao Spring Tips Yunnan black at the moment.

Crushingly boring ancestry(to me at least, nothing exotic at all, Mom's side of the family from Stockholm afaik, Dad's has some farmer roots from Småland county)here, i e 'just Swedish'.
Swedes in general can be a little derogatory towards their nationality and culture ^^

I have met descendants of relatives who emigrated to the States though.

Writing this on my computer which stands on an antique octagonal table given to my maternal grandmother when she was five...in 1903. Some present for a kid that age.


Introvert, HSP, synaesthetic. 41 years old but still living the life of a single guy 15 years my junior and intending to keep it that way. :) Maybe it's Quentin's fault...

So far today the only tea has been cheap Chinese sencha at a café more known for its huge desserts buffet..this needs to be remedied STAT.

20 year old tea-lad

My grandfather was from Shanghai, making me one quarter Chinese. Aside from that I'm just a European mix - Swedish, Danish, Dutch, something along those lines.

Brewing den's fukamushi maki in a shibo was a bit tricky...

out of curiosity, which senses cross over for you? I'm guessing sound and color, since apparently those are the most common.

Hmm... Let's just say I get considerable use out of my National Parks Senior Pass and am approaching eligibility for full Social Security benefits, though not yet ready to apply. Ethnicity: pure Dutch, far as I know. (Not exactly a novelty in my part of Michigan.) Off-the-scale introvert.

Since last I posted here, ages back, I've migrated some from green teas (which I still enjoy most days, especially senchas and the wondrous things Yunnan Sourcing has on offer) to a new and ongoing love affair with low-end shengpu. Tonight it's a 2009 Badashan cake that quite hits the spot.

Correct, taste and color also.

Letters and numbers, days of the week, names of months. Some other things...
