Sounds like a great idea, Cinnamon Kitty...Green Tea Day...practice for Monday, St Patty's Day.
The two Asian Restaurants I like to go to actually have pretty good tea. The one by college is a Mongolian Buffet that includes a sushi bar with the price of the buffet. It is less than $10 for the dinner buffet and has free hot tea. I don't know what kind of tea it is, as I generally forget to ask, but it tastes like typical Chinese restaurant tea. The other place is a higher class hibatchi grill restaurant. Their food is absolutely incredible and they always give tea for desert.
That is a great idea, Chip! I didn't even connect the idea of Green Tea with St. Patrick's Day. It makes perfect sense though. A holiday that is associated with the color green definitely requires Green Tea. Now I have a tea plan until Monday!
My Teaday was not overly productive as I only got through two teas, but it was delicious. After the Fuka-Midori was finished, I switched to the Fukamushi-Maki. The need to finish up the teas I got from Den's is going to make the next week or so quite enjoyable.
