Hello! lurker from Texas

by auggy » Mar 21st, '08, 11:04

So I've been lurking around TeaChat for a couple of weeks and feeling rather intimidated since I'm very new to lose tea, but I figured what the heck and decided to de-lurk.

I've been a tea fan for a bit, but only recently delved into the world of loose teas. But after having my first taste of Ti Kuan Yin Monkey Picked last night, I'm definitely sold. I'm a big fan of green teas and am starting to like oolongs. Not a big fan of blacks, but still hunting for one I enjoy as hubby likes the blacks best (he isn't as excited about teas as me, but enjoys drinking what I brew!).

Anyway, I look forward to joining y'all here and I apologize in advance for anything stupid I say as a newbie! :D

Welcome! Cute avatar! You will find a lot of knowledge here, just look around and ask questions. Don't be shy! Oolongs are my favorite and TQY is a good place to start.

Be sure to check in on the TeaDay forum and tell us what's in your cup!

Welcome!
Victoria

Thanks all, for the welcome!

Olivierco, no, I haven't tried that yet. I haven't tried that many teas yet, but I am making a list - and Yunnan golden tips is going on it! :)

What a "stupid" thing to say. :lol: Just teasing. Welcome to TeaChat, and don't worry about saying something stupid. I have said around 1,967 stupid things to date and counting...

I saw you on TeaDay!!! I hope you visit us there often. It is a great place to casually post and get to know everyone. We can get to know you as well!

A really nice black and right up your alley...Golden Monkey.

Chip - thanks! Will try the Golden Monkey, too. I think I'm going to have to try any teas with "monkey" in the name just 'cause.

That is just "stupid"... :wink: but I figured as much. :P Nothing called Pink Monkey that I know of.

You are very welcome.

You have no idea how close I was to actually asking about that! :lol: But see, just trying to (somewhat) refrain from making "stupid" posts. Don't think it's working though! :wink:

Hey, I've had that! But my package didn't come with little pink monkeys. Now I feel cheated!

It's probably better described as 'Pinky Matcha Milk'

It's a promotional (probably limited edition) range of their candy specific to Kyoto. I haven't tried it, but the flavour is supposed to mimic powdered green tea mixed with milk (yum!)
