Hello, nice to meet you. (`v`*)
My name is Rie. I have too many favorite teas to list, but I have a bit of oolong bias. :D
I prefer straight teas with layered, complex profiles, towards the lighter side of the spectrum. But sometimes I like subtly flavored teas, and fresh tisanes – marked by my collection of Lupicia tins. I also have a weakness for Earl Grey, and am still searching for the perfect one. :D
About me? Well, here’s my intro thread: http://steepster.com/discuss/7824-hello-again-steepster-u
So yes, I am a returning Steepster with a bit more history. :) I now work (very passionately) for Tealet as a tea taster and general manager. In my personal leisure time, I conduct experiments and dabble in chaxi, which I sometimes post on my Instagram (@oolongcity).
Because I work in the industry, my tasting notes will not include any numerical ratings; I don’t want to be skewing any scales!
Outside of tea, I love to eat, cook, travel, and get into lengthy conversations about anything and everything. Fun, fun. I also like the rain, early mornings, and the city atmosphere. You know, things that are compatible with tea. Haha ~
