Hey Chip, glad to find you here.

I spent a year or two mainly drinking my way through the stocks of tea I'd gathered. Mostly pu-erh but lots of other odds and ends, thought I was done a few times but kept finding sneaky stashes around the house. Got a kilo or so of cheap and cheerful tie guan yin, bi lo chun & qimen from Gordon at Dragon Teahouse last year which has provided a little variety but the old stocks are pretty much gone now and the budget pack is fading.....time to start shopping soon. There's a hint of summer in the air here and I've been dreaming about some of that fresh Japanese wonder you so love, will have to wander by Kevin's store.

How are you doing?

I've been using the Teachat forum as a resource but never posted anything. Decided to change my ways with teaforum :-]

My tea journey started in 2006.

Various teas - favourites are Anxi tie guan yin, dancong, Chinese greens, Taiwanese. Also enjoy wuyi, Japanese and Darjeeling.

Preparation depends on the tea type. Good quality water, good teaware, good tea all make a good start ;-]

Tea knowledge wants right now: highly regarded tea vendors in Europe and China.

My first good tea came from a friend of a friend who had been travelling in China - the most delicate flavour but the feeling of the liquor, I have never been able to forget. That feeling every time I drink a worthy tea keeps me on the tea path.

I'm from the UK.
