How long have you been into tea? For around 9 years now
What got your started with tea? A gift of loose leaf tea from my fiancé. It was the first loose leaf I ever tried and I haven’t looked back since
How do you store your tea? Depends on the tea but I store a lot of my tea in the cupboard in my desk because it’s dark. Most of it though I tend to store in air tight boxes sorted by type. Once I reach for everyday are in a cupboard in my kitchen.
What is your favorite way to drink tea? Japanese Teas I will prepare in a Kyusu or houhin and matcha in a chawan. My other teas I tend to prepare gongfu style. I tend to see it as a meditative practice so like to follow traditional preparation methods.
Do you also drink coffee? No.
What is the perfect setting for drinking tea? Outdoors! Tea and nature work wonderfully together and it’s so much more relaxing and makes meditation easier. It’s nice to be away from the world and everyday distractions.
How many cups of tea do you drink in a day? I would probably say between 14-18 (gong fu style) plus a bowl of matcha.
