You know green tea is a tea that one could make theirself, if you had a tea bush or severly and picked some nice young health leaves and steamed or dried, or even did it like the tang dynasty or lu-yu, the tea sage, and ground it some and boiled it. Just a thought. I heard that a good tea to grow is fu-shou (an oolong with fat leaves). I guess with fat you get more for your money. In Taiwan I went to a tea estate were we had a guide/farmer and we made some oolong... they did the picking we just did the fermenting/tossing/roasting it still took about two days, it sure did make me appreciate "made tea"....
oh, about the ceremony stuff if anyone is interested it is here.
one nice thing about a tea ceremony is it is a way to expose folks to tea. I think last time I posted some others thought I was conjuring up ghosts...hahhahah just kidding
