Teaviews Profile: Pat
Hi! My name is Pat Canella and I am a 20 year old student at Allegheny College. I'm located in Meadville, (boring town!) Pennsylvania and am a Computer Science major. I grew up in Erie, Pa and I love working with computers and playing/watching Hockey. I love summer and going outside.
I'm into Eastern Culture, especially their landscaping and water gardens. I am also into the hobby of keeping and maintaining saltwater (reef) aquariums! It is fascinating and I really enjoy it.
I got into tea about two years ago, when I started with low-quality bagged teas. Gradually I explored the nuances and flavor of loose teas and was almost instantly hooked! I find tea to be more of a social art than anything, as having tea alone is not quite the same as having tea with another person. I love preparing tea for people, and seeing their reactions to the different flavor. Don't get me wrong though, I love to drink it and can't stop doing it!
Arguably, my favorite kind of teas would have to be Oolongs and non-flavored black teas. The subtle flavors are something that one must train the palate to locate and each one has an earthy undertone to it, some that are difficult to taste! With practice and consistent tea tasting, one can find the difference.
