    I'm drinking green tea.

    Itoen green tea, only available at Meidi-Ya supermarket as Cold Storage and NTUC do not carry them.



    Black tea,

    I've tried a few brands that is readily available at NTUC and Cold Storage and the taste is a bit flat.

    The Itoen green tea taste just like the one served when I was in the restaurants in Japan.

    HTH.

    My favourite tea is earl grey. Very fragrant.

    I love Chinese tea too. Was introduced to different varieties of Puer, Longjing, Oolong, and Mo li hua cha few years back when i went to Shanghai for the first time. Until then all I knew was Lipton Green tea

    there is huge wholesale market in Shanghai where I usually buy the tea from. If anyone needs contacts, let me know.
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....

    my gf's schooling in beijing now and she sends little surprises over

    but for bulk of my green teas i usually get them from a local shop that ships in only the freshest green teas straight from plantation and refridgerates them upon receipt.

    I don't trust tea from China.. who knows what pesticides they use on the tea plants. I always like to get taiwanese tea. They got the best stuff. Some people say go shan cha "high mountain tea" is one of the best but I don't like the taste. My favorite is just a good clean quality jasmine green tea.
