Tea Leaves on Rails

After visiting several awesome tea houses in Portland, I had an idea for my first Rails app: “I’m going to make an app for tea drinkers!” Compared to coffee or wine, there’s relatively limited resources written about tea in English. But that doesn’t stop locals to shop and try authentic teas!

But wouldn’t it be great if you can log flavor and aroma after you try a new tea, or have tea enthusiasts teach you about different categories of tea and how to brew them properly? I started working…

Not a great analogy, but the app is kind of like Vivino but for tea leaves!
