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.

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 :embrass:

there is huge wholesale market in Shanghai where I usually buy the tea from. If anyone needs contacts, let me know.

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.
