Hello!

by TaiPing Hou Kui » Jan 25th, '08, 13:22

I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Nick and I am a college student on the east coast. I have been drinking loose leaf for about the last two years. My main brewing vessels are a 5.2 oz. yixing and a 6 oz tokoname kyusu. I have recently purchased a nice Hagi Kyusu with matching yunomi (cup) and yuzamashi (water cooler)--I will post pictures soon. I primarily drink greens and whites with a preference for japanese greens but a pure love for one particular chinese green (TaiPing Hou Kui)--as you can probably tell by my Name/Profile on "Teachat". anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself to the forum and tell everyone a little bit about myself. Happy Brewing!

Hi TPHK,
Love TPHK, did you ever have Cha Wang TPHK, wow, not only looks supreme, but it even tastes more full that typical TPHK. Either way, it is a wondrous green tea.

LOL, you have already impressed many with your teaware!!! Take a look under Teaware. ah heck...here is the link... you will like this thread.

Great Teaware Topic

So, you also like sencha, I presume??? That is my favorite right now.

And a heart felt welcome to TeaChat!!!

Good to see you on board. Your screen name draws me to you like a moth to the flame!

Why have you chosen the name of that lovely tea (why not Fukamushi, for instance), which examples of it have you had.

It's suprising that there are not more people here who take the name of a favorite tea.
