BYOT! Enter TeaChat here, you never know what you may find!

I have just received a report from the USDA from a tea importer friend of mine. All tea imports from China are to be placed in quarantine for at least 6 months. Will this cause you to switch to Japanese teas?

I already drink almost exclusively Japanese green tea

I pity the fool that didn't stock up today, and has to go six months without their favorite Chinese tea.




Nicely done Chip!
I'm enjoying a cup of Silver needles to end the day.

Good news, due to heavy pressure by Tea Lobbyists in DC, a stay has been placed on the quarantine pending congressional hearings.

Enjoy the reprieve.
