The very nice lady at Virtuous Teas hooked us up with 4 kinds of green tea basics to try tonight- 2 Japanese and 2 Chinese. For us, (3 people, my husband, Ellyn my bud, and myself) the Japanese won handily 2 to 0. This was #2 of the Chinese and BLeccchhhhhhhh. It had the roof of the mouth coating nastiness I hate in wine OR tea, where you feel like you grew instant velvet there and it tastes puckery awful. This goes on my list to try again in a few years because you never know, tho I think I know….with so many different teas to try, why cross this bridge twice?

My mother had different teas around as a nutritionist, the worst I ever tried was chapparel- (sp?) it tasted like plastic. My friend Ellyn has now reinfected me with a loose tea passion! I must give snaps to my son Robby, who sent me the most gorgeous present from Argo teas and they sat in my cupboard for a year unopened! FOR SHAME MAMA!
