Hi new member here, was introduced to this forum by @Youzi from reddit.
  • How long have you been drinking tea?
All my life, but got into Gongfu brewing past year.
  • What kind of tea do you drink?
Mainly Oolong, Dan Cong, Yancha. Then Pu Er ripe and raw. Occasional Green Tea and Japanese Hojicha
  • How do you prepare your tea?
Gongfu style of course.
  • What tea knowledge are you interested in exploring right now?
Tasting & exploring more tea types. Understanding & Learning Teapot types, sizes and their clays, to the type of tea. (More for practical use than collection).
  • What factors lead you to delve into the world of tea, and what is keeping you there?
Been drinking tea since very young since my family always drink tea. They didn't know much about tea though. Was a coffee drinker (still am), but started exploring tea when family members brought a lot of Dan Cong back from a visit to China. Always seems not satisfied with the tastes and they do not brew proper gongfu style (only using quick gongfu brewer), but know nothing about brew time and temperature. Until one day I started exploring and learning. Falling down the bottomless pit I go...

Hi all, newbie here. Looking for a tea forum to expand my knowledge on tea.

How long have you been drinking tea?
Started drinking actively 9 years ago, after visiting Hangzhou China.

What kind of tea do you drink?
You guess it right, green tea from Hangzhou. It's called long jing tea. Was hyped up by the salesperson and bought at a slight premium but no regret, I liked it and should have bought more. Besides, I drink Pu-er too and lately, I get involved in mixing and matching some herbs with a friend.

How do you prepare your tea?
Long jing green tea is one of the easiest tea. It doesn't even need to boil water and I finish all the leaves by chewing too. But it is not the same with Pu-er. I drink it with thermal flask.

What tea knowledge are you interested in exploring right now?
Mixing and matching the right mix for taste and nutrition.

What factors lead you to delve into the world of tea, and what is keeping you there?
To gain more knowledge, experience from the tea lovers here. Perhaps, more friends??

What is your location?
Penang, Malaysia.
