Unless otherwise noted, I use 2.25g of tea to 6oz of water for my tastings.
Geeky, vegan, dominant, serious, non-gendered, married, childfree, eclectic, alternatively-styled, friendly and open-minded are good descriptors of me, I think. Also: extremely introverted, but not at all shy.
I grew up on bag teas, mainly Lipton, at my father’s and great-grandmother’s homes. I loved getting up before everyone else and sitting with a hot cup and reading or watching some quiet tv in the morning.
I didn’t bother much with tea for the years of my teenhood because of no longer seeing either of these people and my mother’s house wasn’t one for tea… more coffee drinkers, instead.
During my adulthood I started drinking it again, but still mostly bag teas like Lipton, Tetley, and some herbal mixes. I enjoyed these but went no further…
…until I was at a restaurant one night and ordered a Darjeeling tea to give it a try.
I fell back in love with tea and have since been trying all sorts of loose leaf and some bag teas.
I’m currently delving mainly into white teas, but my tastes wander.
I’m also now in a tea-of-the-month club, dabbling in other loose-leafs here and there, and randomly pick up things that look interesting at a store now and then.
I live in Texas somewhat against my will (we’re here due to my husband’s job right now), though I enjoyed Dallas. I’m now in a tiny town south of there and north of Austin.
Not sure what else to say here… if you like my notes or are interested in chatting about something, do feel free to send a note. I love meeting new folks, especially since we share at least one interest, being on this site and all.
