Scruff was closest, but Chip's was most imaginative.

I wasn't born yet. Made in Japan. Born in US. Was in Japan for 6 months. 8)

I do like the raptor thing. Pecking at my keyboard. :)
Salsero actually guessed that, though not in this thread, so he wins. :) Glad I was on the right track though... (raptors?)

I had some sort of new fangled botted tea at work today. Two reps from Miller (the beer guys--I know, tea; wtf?) brought them in for me to taste.

Now I'm trying some TROT All Day breakfast, a blend of keemun and oolong that I thought had a chance of not sucking. Its all right.

Oh, 28 here.

I'm thinking I'm going to finish the day with a Chamomile and Mint Blend.

Crashing and burning toward bed in the comforting arms of an especially soft and sweet 2005 sample of puerh.

Getting excited as I see more and more talent showing an interest in building on wikiCHA.com and fiddling and adjusting in a wiki kind of way.

And now I see Space is adding gyokuro to his Den's order! Oh no, and I haven't even caught up to the AGE OF MATCHA yet!! The bowls, the wisk, the gritty green stuff floating in the water. Six months ago I swore I wouldn't get sucked into the green sea of Japanese tea, and here I am having thoughts of matcha and gyokuro!

Soon you will regret to have waited so long before trying gyokuro and matcha...

It is all part of the master plan...but you better hurry!!!
News flash
Sudden increased demand has caused a severe shortage
in the Japanese tea market.
Tea Futures have risen more than 50%.
The cause of the shortage has been tied
to an American tea forum.

Recently turning 30 kicked me up an age bracket.

I'm of the female persuasion- currently drinking Genmaicha (an old favorite).

Lol, so do you need someone to tell you that you're 22 since you're 50 and act 12?
