Teaviews Profile: Alexander


My name is Alexander, and I'm a 22 year old music student living in upstate New York. I play recorder and native american flute. Besides music and tea, I am interested in backgammon, scifi and fantasy novels, and my cat.

I first got interested in tea at around the age of 13 or 14, starting off with fancy teabag teas (like Bigelow or Twinings – I don't remember the exact brands). Then, one day, I chanced upon the small loose tea section in the local supermarket. I bought two tins (Jacksons of Piccadilly Russian Caravan and Darjeeling) and my interest was kindled. Over the next few years I drank tea on and off, but for the last few years I have been seriously hooked.

I drink mostly oolong and puer teas (and always make them gongfu style), but do drink other teas from time to time. In the “non-oolong and puer” category, I especially like lapsang souchong and silver needle. I drink at minimum 5 (100 ml) cups a day. Tea is a major part of my life; I can't imagine life without it.
