A VERY new Tea Drinker

by Tiercel » Nov 5th, '11, 23:47

Hello everyone. My name is Keith, and I've been drinking tea for about a week. Tonight I made my first tea at home (High Mountain Oolong from Tienxi). It was great!

I'm 51 years old, and until a week ago, my most positive reaction to tea was firm shrug, but last week while visiting an Asian supermarket in Seattle, and after seeing my wife's response to a sample, I decided to try a little. I was only expecting to make polite noises. I was shocked when I discovered that it was really good! So we bought some.

I've spent the last week researching how to make it, and tonight was my first attempt, and it was a success. I'm still very new at this and expect to ask many questions, and am looking forward to browsing the posts here.
