So far I haven't been to many - I mostly order my tea online and enjoy it at home.
Weekends at most any time, but I can do some evenings during the week (depends on if work goes late or not).
At the moment I really enjoy black vanilla or black cream with a touch of orange Rooibos.
Probably close to 8 years more or less. I was involved closely with the creation of a cafe in NYC, and became a convert with the loose teas they served there. Never could go back to that bagged stuff they sell in grocery stores. :)
Tastings, tea ceremonies, education, cooking classes (I've been seeing some really interesting tea recipes lately, i.e. adding it to kimchi!), teahouses, etc.
I'm a long time tea drinker, and have a big drawer at home stuffed with a wide variety of teas to prove it. It's nice to meet others who understand and can appreciate how wonderful and varied quality tea can be.
