My Story

I grew up in a family that made tea every single day. Tea has been a major part of my childhood and still is most important to me today. There is no other subject I am as interested in and obsessed with as tea.

Tea has been with me for years, but my obsession did start back in my teenage years. My parents and I visited my sister and her boyfriend in their new apartment. My sister offered to make us some tea.

She grabbed a sample and started heating the water. When the water reached the perfect temperature, she poured it into the teapot and served the tea shortly after. It was a white tea, Bai Hao Yin Zhen or Silver Needle to be exact.

While I had previously tasted tea, this was a new experience for me. I have not had any cup of tea that was so delicate but complex at the same time. I have even documented the tea I have had that day and you can see that cup on the image at the beginning of this post.

Why I Started TeaSteeping.com

The interest that my key experience with tea has sparked led me to experiences and intense research related to tea. I have had uncountable cups of tea in my life and I have cherished and assessed every single one of them.

After relatives, friends, and colleagues started asking me a question about tea I noticed that my interest could help other people. Sharing experiences is one of the major joys of life and with TeaSteeping.com share my experiences and what I have learned about tea.
