What do you like about tea? Think in areas of its flavor, benefits & so on.

I really love the history about tea, like how did it came from China to Europe. I like the fact that every tea tastes different and that although teas are from the same type for example there are many Darjeelings but they may taste different from eachother, and how is that possible? What make this tea so lightly or why is this tea so fruity? Discovering from where the tea comes from is really important to me. I love tea tastings. And I love having discussions about the teas we have tasted, because you will always find flavors you may not taste before. I love to gain my knowledge about tea. That is why I want to go to the tea plantations while my world traveling and pick the leafs for one day and brew my hand picked tea. I do not only want to taste it. I want to feel the experiences we may not have and cant see.

Would you like participate in any tea workshops regarding sampling, brewing, storing, culture & health benefits?

I love tea tasting. That includes trying the samplings, brewing and taste it. For me the taste of tea is more important than to know what kind of effects it has on my body. Of course, it is important to me too to know how to store my tea to keep the flavor. And knowing about tea ceremonies is important to me too.

When is the best time for you participate in activities? Weekday or weekend? Day or night?

Depends on my working schedule.

What are your 3 to 5 favourite teas? How much tea do you drink a day?

1 - 1,5 liter a day. I love Ceylon, Oolong, Sikkim, Assam.

Where do you buy tea? How long have you been drinking tea?

I am drinking good tea since 3 years for now. I was working in a tea & coffee shop in Germany. The name was Rupps Kaffee- &Teeladen.

Introduction

I was born in Germany and I was working in a very fine tea & coffee shop before I came to Vancouver. I am doing a world traveling right now and Van is my first target. I love tea, because it can turn a tragedy into comedy :).
