Hi! I’m a coffeeholic-turned-tea-addict, though my experience with tea doesn’t extend much past re-steeped home go-to pots and dim sum restaurant cups. I am fascinated by the history of tea because, hey, wars were fought over this stuff, right?
My favorites are jasmine (my #1), mint, Ceylon, oolong, the occasional well balanced tie guan yin, the occasional white, chrysanthemum, and chamomile. Herbals are a hit or miss — I seriously cannot stand rooibos or other flower bomb tea.
Regardless, my tea-steeping and tea-pouring etiquette could REALLY use some work. Hopefully this website will change that!
