Green Tea and Me


My name is James and I love green tea! I like all kinds of teas, such as Maofeng, Maojian, Longjing, Biluochun, Tie Guan Yin, in fact all kinds of varieties and flavors.

I started to drink these fascinating beverages around 1998 and have been drinking and researching them ever since. The first variety I bought was a Japanese Sencha. I thought it was fantastic and immediately became hooked.

I then went on to discover the great range of products from the Chinese market. The only problem was where to get high quality goods for a fair price? It’s much easier now to find a high quality product and if you try out some of the great varieties featured on this web site you’ll see what I mean.

I was always a big drinker of the black variety and so discovering these new flavors opened up a whole new world. There are so many varieties to choose from. Another bonus for me is that as I have a milk intolerance I can quite happily drink these relaxing beverages as they require no milk.

All the different varieties are packed with antioxidants, minerals, bioflavanoinds and other health enhancing properties. However if you are not a fan of the taste; I personally don’t understand how you could not be! But if you are not then there are plenty of other products on the market to allow you to experience the benefits of green tea.

If you enjoy drinking tea then you may also be interested in the history of green tea, the potential health benefits and all the interesting tea ware and accessories which you can buy. If you buy quality tea then you will want to know about brewing tea and tea storage. You may even be interested in purchasing a beautiful Chinese tea pot. There is a great choice of tea pots and other accessories available now including tea infusers, tea filters, tea bags, modern tea pots, Yixing tea pots and antique tea pots. They all help to make your drinking a more fun and enjoyable experience.

Drinking tea is one of my favorite pastimes and it seems I’m not the only one as it has become the second most popular drink on the planet after water. If you often meet together with friends for tea then it can be great fun to try different varieties together and impress your friends with your tea knowledge.

I hope you will find the information on this web site useful and enjoy your journey of discovery as much as I’m enjoying mine!
