Teaviews Profile: MaryAnn
I discovered Teaviews while searching online to replace my defunct tea provider. I’m a journalist and civil engineer with a consulting engineering practice. I write mysteries on the side. I’ve been a nearly rabid tea drinker for 35+ years. I am primarily a fan of Indian tea and similar teas from SE Asia or Africa. I also like British tea blends. I hit the “older opinionated tea drinker” demographic right on the nail head. We don’t so much drink coffee any more (if we ever did), our bodies will no longer allow us to consume as much fine wine as we’d like, thus we cling passionately to tea.
Qualifications beyond writing, engineering and tea-loving background: I have done graduate work in water treatment engineering and filter my drinking water for both health and taste purposes; although not much of a coffee drinker, I have tagged along on bean buying trips to esoteric mountain regions of Venezuela. Bonus attribute – I’m capable of drinking quite a lot of tea, every day, like clockwork.
