I'll drink to that. Though sadly all I'll be drinking is water. :( No tea yet for me today. I have to wait until I get home.

Green tea is definitely one of my favorites. I drink it most every day. I absolutely love all of the Japanese greens that I have tried so far. Though this morning, I started with some Russian Caravan in hope that a strong black tea would wake me up. It didn't, but it was still tasty.

I'm having some green tea right now. A decent late winter harvest lightly oxidized Ali Shan from Hou De. ;P (green OOLONG...)

This is such a coincidence. I just got home from running errands and decided to check this forum before getting back to work! I just made myself a cup of Den's Fuka-Midori, sat down and clicked on this poll . . . happy friday.

Looking into my cup, I see sencha Tokusen...TGIGreen TeaDay for me.

I love greens in case you did not already know that. I drink them almost all the time. I love the freshness of the aroma and the flavor. Sometimes I like their intensity...other times I like their subtlety. Some, I like their green leaf, others I like their artistic leaf.

I do not know if this is a phase I am going through, or a lifetime thing.

tea day

I drink green tea (generally Japanese) now and then, but lately I've found some that I really like and I think I may be drinking more green in the future.

This afternoon I'm drinking some Sencha Kenjyo from Tao of Tea. It's really good--very rich and buttery. Of course, for $18/oz. it ought to be good. Not likely to splurge like that again. Adagio's excellent Sencha Premier is a bargain by comparison, and just a great tea all around.

It's always so easy to agree with Proinsias. It must be all the haggis that makes him such agreeable company.

Enormously enjoying the 25 gr bag of my first Xu Fu Long Ya of the new season, and looking forward to tapping into the Emperor Long Jing and Meng Ding Gan Lu. And this is just prologue to shincha!!

As much as I love the greener oolongs, spring is for lovers ... of green tea. I can drink oolong any time, in fact autumnal and winter oolongs are often great, but the greens are for spring. Drink 'em while they're fresh!

[blushes] Thanks Salsero[/blushes]

I usually don't get too involved with green tea until summertime. I think this may be part of living in Scotland and the weather here affecting my tea choice more than the weather eastwards.

I suspect a spring day in Zhejiang province might be closer to a summer day in my neck of the woods.

From a Chinese medicine pov: would hot and sunny also be the best conditions for battering my internal organs with young sheng?

I'm not trying to be disagreeable deliberately, honestly.

I finished another package of Uji Gyokuro Kame-Giru-Shi, my favorite green tea so far. Which means that I will very soon open a new gyokuro package, Ippodo Ippoen I guess.

Now my usual rooibos to end the day.

Mmm that sounds quite delicious. Right now i'm working on an ito-en sencha shot (yes i know, tea from a can...) but I can't get up from my desk right now to make something different. <sigh>

I like green tea and have it most days. Fukamushi Sencha is one of my favorite teas at the moment, which along with Golden Monkey are the ones that are at the top for me, below puerh of course.

Right now green tea is my most favorite style of tea. I love oolong, and I love black tea. But the unique spirit of green tea unceasingly beckons to me, and I fulfill that call.
