Bio

Still consider myself a novice tea drinker. Started with Teavana teas about 10 years ago (back when they only had a few stores, still prioritized a knowledgeable staff & better quality tea over high-pressured sales). Definitely looking forward to moving onward & upward from there! So happy to have found a web site with good information!

I prefer strong teas, with a lot of flavor/body, over the more delicate ones. I usually drink tea sweetened.

Since I consider taste (likes/dislikes) to be extremely subjective, I do not usually score teas. And below are a few words about my preferences, so if anyone happens to be reading a tasting note, they can see how my likes/dislikes may align with theirs:
-Prefer black over green teas.
-Prefer flavored teas over unflavored.
-Prefer fruit flavors over floral.
-I can appreciate a spicy flavor profile
-But I not like pepper in tea, so do not like most chais.
-I do like the mildness of white teas, but not so much the “vegetal” taste. I do not like my tea to taste like I just mowed the lawn.

I am very interested in the scientific, historical, and business sides of the world of tea as well. If anyone has any sources of information on these topics, I would be very grateful to be pointed in the right direction. I am a plant scientist by trade (including a very small amount of work involving tea).
