Bio

I developed a taste for drinking tea growing up with evening cups of Orange Ginger Mint tea after dinner with my parents and brother. Non-caffeinated, it was a tasty drink that we all could enjoy late at night while talking about all sorts of things before shuffling off to bed. As I got older and caffeine at night wasn’t something we really paid attention to as a family, Jasmine and Earl Grey came into the works as our evening and morning teas. Then we moved to Japan for three years around the same time I came to that age of independent exploration. So, beginning with matcha, genmaicha, and sencha, I set off on a tea-tasting journey that I have brought my parents and some friends along on too. (My brother tends towards coffee, which is great because we can inform each other). I have a taste for teas that allow for subtlety of aroma, color and flavor like Oolong and green, and I love to talk about those subtleties. On the other hand, I take unthinking voracious pleasure in plenty of black teas and thirst-quenching herbals, as well as fun fruit or floral infused numbers. I am on Steepster to find access to teas I would not have come across otherwise and also to promote appreciation of green and oolong teas, a bit.
