I’m a dedicated student and practitioner of Gongfu Cha and you can usually find me brewing my tea in a gaiwan. I tend to stick to straight teas and scented teas most often, though I dabble in tisanes and flavored blends from time to time. I use a Tokoname-ware kyusu for Japanese green teas and a chawan for matcha.
To me, tea offers a time of peace and reflection in solitude, or sharing and enjoyment with friends. It has become a huge part of my life lately.
Aside from tea, I’m a novelist and creator of all types. I love to cook, create music, write, draw, decorate, and do just about anything creative I can get my paws on. I also enjoy creating beverage recipes.
I am really interested in Asian cultures and have a much deeper interest than my shameless love for anime and Japanese video games.
I’m a friend to animals of all kinds. I couldn’t live in a world without animals. Conserving and respecting them is very important to me.
But I am mostly here on Steepster to talk tea! Let’s enjoy the world of tea together!
