    This is more exciting than the Nintendo live feed.

    Is it Jacksons ftw?
    Is Green Tea with Lemon the superior flavour???

    ok...

    it tastes sort of watery, i let it brew for about a minute and a half or so, i might try it for longer next time, but not too much longer.

    Its quite pleasant though isnt it? Sort of mild and fluffy... Its a sort of calming taste.

    I only drink coffee normally, but this is... different

    You also get Japanese Sencha with puffed rice stuff in it. Adds a nice new dimesion to it, can't remember what it's called though.

    \o/ay!

    Today is Green Tea day!!ii!!ii!!

    Leave it in a bit longer. It's not as strong as the loose-leaf stuff mentioned. Four minutes or so for me.

    As an update to this already riveting thread... I'm currently sat in work drinking a cup of nice Sencha with Lemon, let it brew a bit longer this time and have a nice mellow but full of flavour taste now. I think i'm getting the hang of this brewing malarkey.

    I might move onto some of the more 'hardcore' tea once this packet has been consumed.

    Good. I've just got back from China and have some proper Green Tea here. I don't know what it's called but it cost 40 a packet and makes Sencha taste like stinkweed.

    Any partakers?

    For the health benefits (natural thermogenic, antioxidants, less caffine etc) I recently ditched a normal brew in favour of the greener stuff with lemon, its lovely, so damn refreshing!

    yep, I think my regular tea drinking days are over.

    I find the supermarket or branded green tea to be a bit rubbish, but I love the real stuff. Jasmine tea is also great.

    I drank green tea for a good few years but evntually drifted back to a good old regular cup of tea.

    I still like Green tea however.

    I drink white tea; tastes like shit but is supposed to be good for you so I let the teabag stew and cool down then neck it like a shot.

    I have a cupboard full of various white, green, and oolong teas, as well as a bunch of tea pots and infusers. My favourite being an oolong called Ice Peak Tung Ting.

    I rarely drink any of it though. Yorkshire Tea every time.

    I drink it a lot. Hate the flavoured stuff though.

    We have tons of different kinds at home, the missus family bring new varieties when they visit from china. I have found that the fancier the less it tastes. Had a weird one today that smelled like cruched blackpepper.

    I just chuck a pinch in the bottom of a pint glass and top it up with hot water. i use the same leaves three to five times.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Love green tea. I like the flavoured ones as well - Twinings Green Tea with Mint is really nice, very refreshing. Also like the Apple & Pear one. And the ginger one. I find the best way is to make a pot with one bag, gives a nice strength.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Nettle tea is quite refreshing.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    I blooming wish Twining's would kindly offer apple & pear as a separate package because you can only get five at a time in a (green tea) variety box.

    Fuck yeah. Who wants tea with no caffeine?

    I like all of these teas for about 3 sips but after that they leave me cold.

    If you don't care for the taste you can mix Silver Needle White tea with English Breakfast tea. So you get the taste and the health benefits (obviously you still get the caffeine).

    Green tea does have caffeine in. It just doesn't need milk to make it taste nice.

    I prefer white tea or something fancy like silver tip with jasmine to green tea. I still quite like a green tea though.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.
