Seems like quite a few people have become active on this forum in the past few months. Many of you I know and exchange with off the forum, but others I know very little about. I find that when I am discussing tea, it helps me to know a little about the other participants. Especially the extent of your experience with tea, background, other interests, etc. I'll start with a quick bio of myself.

Bearsx3, if this thread is successful, could you create a frontpage link to it for easy access?

I'm one of the puerh newcomers, and, as I say, I'm still looking into the metaphorical shop-windows, trying to understand what all is going on in the world of this drink we drink.

I'm a 20-year-old electrical engineering student (Texas A&M University), making up for a poor start at college by going year-round now, hoping to have a BS by 2009. I've been on tea for about 9 months now, and from the few cooked puerhs I've had, I have to say that it is my favorite of all teas (I do enjoy white, green, oolong, black, red, and herbal teas all about the same). What I find I like most about it is the earthy flavor and the complexity attributed as such.

I'm still looking to broaden my puerh experiences in the future, but, as with most college students, my budget is tight.

On the side, my interests include: experimental electronic music, abstract art, diy electronics, cooking (very much anti-"processed sugars" right now), schooling, and "general tomfoolery".

Heh, well technically I'm not anymore, but I'm hoping to get back in next Spring because they have an actual EE major, while many other places (like UT) have a combined Computer/Electrical Engineering major, and I plan to focus more on analog/mixed signal than on IT.

That, and A&M actually has a nice group of nerds mixed in, like Cepheid Variable (my GF is a Cepheid occifer), and I've found that I prefer to stand out rather than "stand in", if you get what I mean.
