Not likely unless a Dong Ding counts. It being a "green" oolong.
I think that you would have to search long and hard on the Emerald Isle to find an Irishman drinking green tea even on St. Patty's day :)

I started out the day green! However, I did not even realize it was St. Patty's Day... There isn't much Irish representation here in Korea... :oops: But I am wearing my green sweater (coincidence)! :lol:

I had some matcha this morning. I was thinking of bringing out the guayusa chai I got from 52teas (it brews a little greenish), but maybe I'll have some green chai or Korean green instead. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I didn't know it was St. Patty's Day.

HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY EVERYONE!!!!!

I had matcha this morning and will probably have more this evening, but that's all for green tea for me. I am drinking some 2004 Ancient Tree Xiaguan and really enjoying it.

Today promises to be another stressful day at work, so I'm not green yet but will be later today. However, I am planning to drink more Japanese greens this year and to spread their purchases across more vendors.

So far this morning, 3 stamp shui xian and ban tian yao.

Like some others I didn't realize it's St. Patty's Day.

Greens definitely won't reign supreme on my TeaDay. I keep sampling greens, but have yet to find any I really like. I kinda liked the gunpowder that came with the Adagio green tea sampler. At the moment I think the only greens I have in stock are a couple of Upton gunpowder samples. I didn't like them as well as the Adagio gunpowder.

At the moment there's some Pu-erh in my cup.

There will be a Yame sencha in my cup at the end of my day and I'm really really hoping that my order from Den's will arrive today so I will have some matcha with which to break in the shiny new chawan I got yesterday. Yay, green!

So far in my day, no green tea.

In my cup now is a Yunnan gold from TeaSpring. This is by far the best black tea I've had so far. Nice and malty, and almost creamy tasting. Mmmmm...

Starting the day with Tai Ping Hou Kui, and perhaps I'll go with some greener oolongs in the thermos this afternoon--yesterday was Lao Cha Tou from norbu in the thermos all afternoon and evening, so I am ready for greener today. And I need to finish a couple of greener things so I can rotate through some new ones. Heh.

No tea yet today; don't know why -- just lazy I reckon.

Granddaughter Samantha heard from her Japanese employer today; he said for her to come on. So, she got her visa at the Japanese consulate on Tuesday and is planning her return to Japan on April 5. Only a worst disaster at the nuclear plant would cause her to reconsider. As I told her, you can always cancel right before you step aboard the plane. She really wants to continue to live and work in Japan. She'll be assisting a teacher in the public school system to teach English. Samantha will be the "native" speaker. They'll all sound Southern. :wink:

I just finished reading For All The Tea In China by Sarah Rose, on my Kindle. Interesting, well-written, fun read.

I did my best:
Yutaka Midori Sencha, Okuyutaka Sencha, Houjicha. :mrgreen:

We don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day over here so I wasn't even aware. Had I known, I would have definitely had some GREEN matcha.

Anyway, happy St. Patrick's Day!
