Hello from Seattle

by nw-T » Mar 20th, '11, 14:25

Just strolled across TeaChat yesterday.I have always loved tea, but it has not been till this year that I have become obsessed with tea, especially Oolong Teas!!
I had sampled some very floral Oolongs that a coworker had brought in a was on a mission to further my education on Oolong and I strolled into Floating Leaves Tea and met Shiuwen!
I have returned many times to drink and talk tea. The shop is a short walk from my apartment and I always leave there feeling very alive!
I am now on my 7th infusion of Baozhong Hon. Mention on this beautiful first day of Spring!
Other teas I have purchased from her are: Muzha Tiequanyia, ShanLinXi, Alishan, Dong Ding Fragrant and Taiwan Shui Xian.
I am looking fwd to increasing my knowledge of tea and this seems like it will be a great place to do that.
I am also interested in purchasing a Yixing pot . I am not in a rush and wondering where the best place to do this would be.
Look fwd to talking tea with you.

Hi Steve, welcome!

I'm so envious of you living within walking distance of Floating Tea Leaves. I love her tea, and right now I'm enjoying a sample of 2010 Winter Farmer's Choice Baozhong tea. My current favorite is the 2010 Winter Lishan oolong.

Wow, how lucky to live within walking distance of a good shop. I look forward to hearing more about your oolong explorations.

"Ballard is a beautiful place to live and drink tea!"

I'm actually in Magnolia, a short walk for me and very rewarding!

Welcome from a fellow Seattlite! Even if I'm a bit further south ... :)

Floating Leaves is sooo good--I just bought some of her remaining 2010 Lishan, and I'm glad I did--apparently she's sold out of all her other 2010 winter teas, and only has a few bags left!

If you get the chance, Kuan Yin is a really nice tea house to visit over in Wallingford, and the New Century Teahouse in the International District also has some really top-notch teas ....

I've been to Kuan Yin but not to New Century yet.We went down to the ID a couple weeks ago, but they were closed.
Enjoy the weekend everyone!
