Hi, I'm Michael
I've been a tea liker-very-mucher for a few decades. I have a broad pallet for tea and I don't know if that's indicative of a lack of gustatory sensitivity, as yet uncultivated taste buds, or...if I just have a broad pallet. I would be interested to discover if there is real love for tea in my tongue - and this seems like a good way to find out.
Oh, all sorts. I always enjoy Darjeeling (I've only had the black), I also love this Ethiopian spiced tea they serve at Meskerem, the Turkish apple tea at Turkuaz, this wondrous chai my aunt keeps. I like functional teas as well, like slippery birch or valerian root tea, as needed.
I'm not familiar with the tea spots around town. Hopefully, as part of this group, I might find some.
