Hi, my name is Steven. Nice to meet you!

How long have you been drinking tea?
A few years now. My interest really developed over the course of the first year of the pandemic. So much to learn still. AGH!

What kind of tea do you drink?
A bit of everything, but mostly oolong.

How do you prepare your tea?
usually Gongfu or glass brewing.

What tea knowledge are you interested in exploring right now?
I am interested mostly in learning more about Wuyi Yancha, Fenghuang Dancong, Long Jing, and Sheng Pu'erh. I'm also deeply interested in learning more about terroir and cultivar.

I'm located just outside of Boston :)

What factors led you to delve into the world of tea?
I used to work in a restaurant that served fine tea. I was asked by my boss to do an educational presentation on our tea menu for staff. It turned into this huge thing that went way beyond the scope of a simple work presentation. But everyone loved it haha. I think that was the first time I realized how vast and unknowable the world of tea is...
