Hey all! Been lurking around for awhile. Finally want to chat so need to post. I love reading on this forum about clay.

I drink mostly puer, but am not too discriminatory if the tea is good.

Thanks for being an awesome place to find tea people

hello, I'm from Romania, I drink tea since childhood, only about 2 years I got in the specific zone. I like the science around tea and to taste new teas, play with brewing methods . Sencha (fukamushi) would be a personal favorite but I like many different kinds

Hi all!

I'm a tea drinker in Philadelphia, PA. Got into serious gongfu brewing ~2 years ago, and I love having something to drink/fiddle with all day that isn't bad for me. Right now I'm interested in gaining knowledge about teaware and adjusting brewing parameters to specific teas

Both gong fu and western, depending on time available, tea being drunk, and general mood.

I'm in Philadelphia, PA. Life long tea drinker. Prefer blacks and oolongs to anything else. Pu erh is still a mystery to me and I don't 'get' it, even though I have quite a bit of it. I'd rather make a pot of tea, Western style, than fuss about with gung fu.
