Thanks @Victoria. Actually, I enjoy the gong fu approach for a highly fragrant Taiwanese oolong, like Ali Shan, but for most Chinese blacks and greens I prefer a 2 to 5 minute infusion.

Hello, I was on teachat under the same handle, but I've been told that this is a more active forum. I've been drinking tea on-and-off for the last 10 years, mostly puerh and aged oolong. I was abroad for the last two years so I haven't been able to drink much tea, but now I have been reunited with my tea collection and teapots. I'm excited to spend more time on this hobby, and pick up more yixing teapots (some of mine got lost in the move sadly)
Did you have a blog under the same name, by any chance?

Yes, and it makes me cringe to think about my writing style in my early/mid 20s.

Hi everyone!

I've been drinking tea for 7-10 years only. I mean here 'normal' tea, not something from those plastic bags. The first tea I tried was milk oolong and since then it's still my favorite one :) I prefer plain green tea or can add honey and lemon sometimes. I think I'm ready to try some unusual tea recipes :lol:

Welcome!

Oolong with milk, or the so-called milk Oolong from Taiwan (Jinxuan)?
