Hi, I'm Nick. I am an entrepreneur, and writer/blogger from Germany. I like to travel, try out new things, and learn as much as I can.  I have long been interested in food. I started cooking at the tender age of eight (first recipe: hot milk with honey) and have been a vegetarian since 2004. By now I have become a bit of a nerd when it comes to the area of food and nutrition and I'm always looking for ways to eat healthier and better.

A while back I lived in China for a year to learn Mandarin and get to know the Chinese culture. It was during that time that I really fell in love with tea. To this day the taste of jasmine takes me back to the greasy tables of tiny noodle restaurants in Beijing. At the moment I live in Istanbul, Turkey, yet another country where tea is a big part of everyday life and culture.  Yet despite having lived in the homelands of tea, I know shamefully little about it. That's why here at Teagora, I have taken up the position of “idiot in residence”. I will be asking and answering all the “dumb” questions about tea to find more about this fascinating beverage. I would invite you to come along for the ride.
