I like green tea. The green tea produced by British companies is mediocre, so I try and buy Chinese green tea from Asian food stores (it's cheaper too!). And I like a brand of Ceylon tea called Dilmah, and I like a tea called Lady Grey which is a black tea with orange and lemon peel and bergamot. And I like herb teas too - we have mint and lemon balm growing in the garden and I also like chamomile tea.
Martin-san, Lady Grey is my favourite!! It has suck a relaxing lovely aroma!
I like mint tea as well; you grow mint and lemom balm? Wow, it must be lovely if you make tea with them
Chinese market have many cheap stuff from Asia, so I think you're doing very good I wonder if they also have the same kind of green tea like ours. You can probably find it at Japanese supermarket if there's any in your area (but I assume it'd cost 3-5 times more than that in Japan).
Wow, old thread but yes, O-cha ga dai-suki desu. In fact, I order Japanese geen tea from a place near Kyoto and have it shipped to my home in the San Francisco Bay Area. Besides being actually much cheaper than buying at a local Japanese market, the taste and quality is much, much better than what I can buy locally. Even if I buy the most expensive premium tea off the shelf, this brand from Kyoto is in another class.
