Because maybe there are other people interested in being updated about japanese green tea?
No one cares to post updates on this forum.

I frankly don't care about who feels saddened by what I write but it's a matter of fact that these still legal
practices (blending) are carried on in Japan.
On the contrary I would feel saddened and worried at most if someone wouldn't report the news of blending adducing the excuse "because it doesn't matter anyone".
News are worth reporting both if they are negative or positive.
@Chip: that blog is respectable when citing fonts so I'm still amazed by your grudge against it, but maybe I can understand it.
Moreover I said "the country Japan
" because in Japan blending contaminated food with uncontaminated one is PERMITTED.
A respectable country doesn't allow that.
For example, the U.S.A. prohibits this practice.
"The blending of contaminated food with uncontaminated food is not permitted because this is a violation of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDA 1991)."http://www.fda.gov/downloads/MedicalDev ... 094513.pdf
Moreover, if this blending practice is currently permitted on tea, it will surely be done also with other foods, such milk, rice, this time resulting in a potentially more dangerous behavior because of everyone uses rice and milk while not everyone drinks tea.
