Default Real Green Tea ?

I am trying to reintroduce a small amount of caffeine into my day.

I have just had some Lipton green tea, in the little tea bag. Not the greatest.

I remember having tea in chinese restaurants years ago. That stuff was the real deal.

I looked online a little but as usual the search produced overwhelming results.

Anyone know a place to get some real good green tea? What do the Okinawans drink that make them live forever?

i think the drink you're thinking of is the powdered young barley grass. You can find either at asian grocery stores. I know you can green tea at health food stores like Whole Foods, and possibly the barley grass as well.

Lipton needs to be set to soak for a while to get the right flavor, but with that can be good. Now there are other commercial brands (Slada is one) that you can find at almost any store (in US).

Adding lemon boosts the antioxidants.

Thanks so far

The kind of tea I am talking about is brewed like this .

Check this out www.o-cha.com/brew.htm

After looking at the instructions on how to brew, it seems like a pain in the rump. They sell a stater kit on that site, looks cool. I'm gonna look around some more and see what I can see.

Probably thinking of macha. Which is powdered green tea you just put in the water. Very potent with antioxidants.


Also, the green tea served at restaurants is often jasmine green tea.

OK, thanks

I might be able to find the jasmine green tea in my town.

After googling that macha stuff, I want some. Sounds good. I will have to order that for sure. I am gonna look around some more. But right now that macha sounds easy and healthy.

Dear rengots
I think India is the great producer of tea.and real tea comes all over the world from india. So you just try Indian tea, i think mention tea name brands are from India.

Default Costco

Not sure if you have access to a Costco near you, but they carry Kirkland Green Tea - Matcha blend in a box of 100 tea bags. I drink about 3 of those a day and they are GREAT! Potent and pleasant.
