How long have you been into tea? since I remember myself
What got your started with tea? family and environment (I come from tea culture, not coffee culture). I always drank black and herbal teas. And about a year ago my friend from Japan sent me some Ippodo teas and that pushed me into exploring more varieties.
How do you store your tea? In a small chest of drawers from IKEA but it spills out on the kitchen counter because I always ran out of space 🙂

Do you also drink coffee? No
What is the perfect setting for drinking tea? nature. that’s why I have a couple of travel sets for steeping
How many cups of tea do you drink in a day? anywhere between 3-5 but really depends on how we define ‘cup’ in terms of size
