Ummm, no.

New, and the guidelines will be tweaked as needed. Obviously Nadacha is not selling Japanese tea.

This is a bit of an experiment, call it phase one. I honestly do not know how successful it will be, or whether it will backfire.

Hoping for the best however. :mrgreen:

Once the topics are unlocked, they will no longer be stickied, just have it this way to raise awareness.

The list Chip nominated is exhaustive for japanese green tea, I tried almost all of the that shipped to my country, Lupiciua does not, and Ippodo made it too complicated, I could NOT add another shop becasue I think these are the vendors are the best ambassadors for japanese green tea, most of them have unique reasons to buy from them, most of those, from the ones I ordered from have a few aces that are worth mentioning.

How about TeaTrekker? The couple who own this wrote a great book about tea called "The Story Of Tea" and have traveled the world to over to get accurate info on tea.


Also they listed Adagio Teas in there book in the vendor section..

I think you may be confused, right now we are only considering vendors of Japanese green tea. I am sure if this turns out to be a good idea we will definitely have a thread for each of those (probably for various types of teas).

Japanese Green teas usually are referred to as Sencha, Bancha, Shincha, Genmaicha, Kukicha, Matcha... so basically they typically have Cha at the end.

Hope this clears up some confusion.

I didn't see any Japanese Greens at Hou De, and only two At Imperial Tea court.

Finally after a long long looooooooooonnng wait - :)
I love this idea - please add ito-en and rishi tea !

Once again - thank you for doing this - I am sure it will save a lot of money - may I also recommend a sticky so that newcomers can read the stick and be aware that such a system exists here?
Thanks....
