Teaviews Profile: Jake
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m Jake, a 19 year old studying ship design in New York while entertaining a growing interest in tea on the side. I grew up on the beautiful Monterey Bay, CA, where I first became passionate about all things culinary. Nowadays, I stick to tea. I drink just about everything I can find, but especially love wuyi cliff teas, and a crisp fresh green tea always seems to hit the spot. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m slowly venturing into puÃ¢â‚¬â„¢erh, but I never know which ones to buy so itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a hit or miss proposition.
Usually I brew in gaiwans, but a few of my favorite oolongs and puÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ers have their own yixing pots. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve also been known to do herbals in a big tetsubin for my friends. Day to day, I try to have a little Keemun or Darjeeling in the morning, and anything goes from there. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m really interested to read about your (the readerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s) tea habits, and am always looking for the next great teahouse or tea vendor (not just in NYC, but anywhere).
