So where did I start? I was drinking tea bags at work. The Bigelow green tea is what they were stocking. It's not bad for bagged tea, but it was leaps and bounds better than Lipton black, oversteeped and nasty. So I experimented, started following the directions on the bag. It was a lot better than it had been.

I found a local company was selling loose tea at my grocery store. Cool. They had some similar teas to ones that I'd bought on Amazon, so I tried these. I liked some better, some worse, but they were lower cost. I started trying other teas they were selling. I liked what I was trying.

So now here I am. I've just started buying teas off the internet, some shipping from China, some from Japan. I'm trying different things than I ever tried before: new methods of brewing, new styles of tea, new equipment.
And this blog, it will be the story of my journey.
