Biographical: A semi-recent convert to the world of loose tea; I've dabbled around the edges of the tea world for years. I have fond memories of drinking herbal tea and solving the world's problems with my college roommates and of my parent's ever present boxes of Constant Comment and Celestial Seasoning's peppermint tea. I tend to prefer stronger flavors over weaker ones, and favor black teas, oolongs and herbals. But I'm up to try almost anything - the variety of the tea world is just amazing!
Other than tea, I've got a diverse range of interests: science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), asian cuisines, reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), and hand sewing. I'm just amazingly lucky that tea goes so well with almost all of these!
