i'm the head of the green tea addict club. and proud of it. i have about 3-4 pots a day. ive been drinking this much for about 8 years, ever since i went to China and got to play around a real tea farm. ohhhhhh. so much fun. so freakin awsome.
anyway. i'm not a huge fan of tea bags. there are some really good kinds, though. yamamotoyama, choice and numi are pretty good. i usually go for the loose leaf. sencha, dragon, gunppowder, japanese are the more readily available kinds. i usually get my loose green from international markets cause they have the best kind i think. i'm a tea snob and i'm ok with that.
one of my favorties is biluochun green, which i have a tough time finding anywhere.
i love white chrysanthemum tea also. but again, it's so hard to find.
jasmine is another favorite.
i know it has a great health benefits, but i honestly just love the tatse and it makes me happy. yeah, i'm reliant on it for my happiness (just kidding). but i do feel lacking if i don't have my daily intake.
i've always said that green tea is the answer to any problem. and dammit i believe it!
i also like rooibos when i get the taste for it. if i listed all the tea in my cabinets ( i have two cabinets soley dedicated to tea), it might be the llongest post ever.
i agree with angel of dance about the tea purist thing too. sacrilige i tell you sacrilege!
