A Bud in the Dead of Winter

Hello everyone! :)

I'm Al (short for Alexandra). While I have written things like personal journals or small ramblings to no one in particular, this will be the first time I write about something for a specific audience and with a purpose. Martin and I have discussed at length different things to write about for this blog, but one thing we both agree on is that we'd like to introduce people to experiencing and enjoying tea. I have grown up drinking tea in my family and pretty much drink tea every day at all different times of day and night. Even so, I am always exploring and trying new teas and learning new things about tea all the time. I would like to introduce tea at a very basic level to people who have some interest but have no idea where to start.

At the same time, Martin and I will probably roam around town and check out different places that are selling tea and tea related product that we can later review for you to try too. :) In case you're not already a friend of ours and you've happened to stumble on this blog through some other way, Martin and I are from Montreal, Canada. The winters here are long and can be unforgivingly cold. It seems appropriate then, that there are some great home-grown tea startups and tea houses from here including names such as David's Tea, Camelia Sinensis, Cha Noir, My Cup of Tea, and others... Reviews on aspects of these companies/shops are definitely going to come soon.

Over the summer, we've also had the luxury of visiting China and bringing back small tasters of tea from different regions, so you'll probably see some commentary on that as well. Here are some of the teas we brought back from our visit:

Some teas include: Huangshan Mao Feng, Huangshan Tai Ping Hou Kui,
Maosheng Liubao, Bi Luo Chun and others...

What are you interested in hearing about in the future?
