This is my first entry on this blog, so little introduction would be appropriate.
I am young tea lover from Slovakia which is located in the central Europe so Im not a native english speaker. My tea journey began probably when I was about 13 years old and I repeated nearly every habit and hobby after my older brother. Thus I picked up some beautiful hobbies and tea was among them.
Another big moment was when I bought my first Tie Guan Yin from Spolem milcu caje. From that moment I was totaly addicted :-) But probably the greatest moment was when I discovered Tealand.sk - a local shop with really high quality teas. And of course its owner- Karol Maco, really educated person in the tea knowledge and also a very good and kind person who really helped me with my countless questions. Its really sad but that shop doesnt exist anymore :-(
Last important moment in my tea journey was when I found www.tea-earth.net - a really good site and forum dedicated to tea, teaware and culture. There I have read about Sheng Pu Erh (the site maker is a big pu erh lover) so I had to try it in one of the local teahouses. And when I did, my obsession instantly began. From that day, Shengs are my favourite teas and "biggest eaters" of my money :-D
