Hey Everybody

by DavidM » Jan 9th, '14, 00:34

Hello all,

I'm David and live in Des Moines. I've recently become more interested in loose teas. My first loose-leaf teas were from Teavana (which I probably shouldn't have mentioned given the sentiments of some forum-goers here) and I've recently ordered a few samples from Adagio (Earl Grey, Irish Breakfast, Black Dragon Pearls, Silver Needle, Gunpowder, and Jasmine Phoenix Pearls). There's also a local tea store here in Des Moines that I'm planning on visiting soon.

I've been doing quite a bit of reading on tea and different preparation methods and am looking forward to learning more here on the boards here.

Welcome David - I'm in West Des Moines and if I'm making a green for just me, I use a gaiwan, black teas I use a teapot with a basket since those are my "go to" teas. But, a good ceramic teapot will do you well. DO visit the store over by the capital. They are very helpful and have a good range of teapots, etc. :)
