Bean: My DH hates green tea too. Also calls them "lawn clippings". I bought him some houjicha and didn't tell him what it was or ask him to try. I took a cup when we were going somewhere in the car. "oh, this is great. You're hoarding this!" He says. Then I told him it was technically green tea - steamed.
Salsero, that is so true. Friday I went out to dinner and ordered a margarita slammed it down on an empty stomach -- not smart. Handed the keys to my sober husband who nearly killed us in one of those stupid roundabouts. I got home and thought, "dangit, I wished I just had a cup of good tea"!
