Default Green tea

We are remaking our diet and i used to drink green tea by the gallon. Does anyone buy green tea over the internet? Where? I hear China is not a great place to get your tea because of pollution, pesticides and low standards. I hear Japan is much better. Any insight on this?

I heard some positive things on this site. They sell tea to eat. Very good goes straight into the body. They also sell tea powder you can add to recipes.

I just brew Lipton in my coffeemaker and sometimes add a little Splenda.

Ew.. green tea. It's like drinking grass.

I love white tea and some black teas, I just can't get into the green ones. I usually buy my tea from teasource - they have some good stuff, and you can pick by region, if you don't want tea from China.

They have a Teavana at the Parker Mall. It's not bad - but it's rather expensive (but it does smell very nice in there). I usually buy all mine online - quality stuff, less expensive.

I hate that place, used to have a really good tea place near my house but it got taken over by Teavana and they jacked up the prices and took away all the good teas and replaced them with their ridiculous products.

I posted this link earlier about powdered tea.

You can put it in your smoothies and one spoonful is the equivilent of 24 cups of tea.

Yeah there tea is pretty good. My ex was a tea connoisseur. If your tea is in a bag and a powder, the quality is poor. Basically that's the scraps that goes into bags and sold to Lipton and such.

The other thing about steeping your tea is you have to be careful because different teas have different steeping times and you have to dial that in or it won't taste the best it can.

I bought the canisters that preserve the freshness of the tea. It has a chart on the side of how long you steep it for etc. The tea is spendy but you only use a couple table spoons at most. Plus is really good tasting tea.

My bad...tea spoons. Making a pot now

McDonalds $1.00 large sweet tea. Boom.






Going to high school in Savannah I developed a taste for southern sweet tea. McDonalds is the closest there is

Can you explain steep to me? What is the process? What do I need to do this?

It's putting the tea leaves in a teapot like the ones on the website. You heat up water, not quite to boiling and pour it in the teapot. Wait 2-3 minutes or whatever the recommended time is for the tea you're brewing. It's easy.
All you need is a teapot, tea and rock sugar is recommended. To heat up the water I just put it in a regular kettle at home.

It's expensive at first but you get what you pay for imo. The cast iron will last forever and the tea tastes really good. I have the Youthberry and the Orange Blossom. Together they taste really good.

I have a really old tetsubin cast iron teapot my uncle brought back from the Korean war. It makes the most awesome tea but its really small makes just enough for 1 person. It's probably from the early 1900's though and looks like it made a lot of tea. I use it to make tea every once in awhile but mostly it sits on a shelf and looks cool.

Yeah, well that is something totally different than green tea. You can make that **** at home with a few tea bags and 5 lbs of sugar,
