I’ve been enthusiastically drinking tea for decades; it’s always been an absolute necessity for me. But a few years ago, a trip to the Pacific Northwest, including visits to some Chinese tea shops, kicked my interest into high gear!
I still enjoy a good “breakfast tea” or flavored blend once in a while, but spend much more time nowadays on single origin teas brewed gongfu style. I’m even hosting tea tastings for my friends.
I enjoy all tea types, but lean towards black (red), oolong and ripe puerh. Unfortunately, many raw puerhs seem to disagree with my insides :( I’ll try anything once, though!
