Ah, the pitfalls of copy/paste. Fixed the absence of China!

However, now there is no "Other."

Usually it's yame houjicha, i really like this tea. And since it contains almost zero caffeine, it's perfect for evening. If not houjicha then it will be either genmaicha or sobacha.

But yesterday my last tea was actually matcha :mrgreen:


p.s.
Maybe for next tea day questions "how much tea you drink each day?" Don't know if it appeared before already :)

With most of my Japanese teas at work, that leaves lots of oolongs, puerh, and Chinese greens at home -- so more often than not, my day ends with a Chinese tea (or possibly Taiwanese).

Hrm, the boss is out most of the day today.... I've already put in 45 hours on the week, I wonder if I can sneak out early...? :lol:

Typically Japan. Occasionally China (Fenghuang) or Ceylon (Adam's Peak).

JTS Gao COng Shui Xian with breakfast again this morning. Finished YesterTeaDay with a ``classic'' TGY from The Mandarin.

my hours are all funny, when is the end of the day :lol:

back when I had more of a schedule though it would be a lighter japanese tea brewed light like kukicha, houjicha, or genmai.

Darjeeling in my cup at work , good stuff

It varies; however, if I were to make a pie chart of the countries-of-origin of the last tea of the day, the biggest chunk would belong to Japan. I love green tea, especially Japanese green tea. Yummm.

Pu-erh this morning; a ton of iced green tea because I spent all this afternoon unlocking the remainder of the songs on my Dance Dance Revolution game and then playing it; currently drinking some rose sencha.

Probably more often china for oolong or puerh, but a lot more variation than with the morning start tea.

I voted China....my tea drinking is pretty evenly split between Chinese and Japanese teas but I gave the edge to China because I often end the day with a shu puerh....that is if i´ve had a heavy dinner.

Today I´m starting and ending with gyokuro...I was drinking coffee earlier in the day.

I don´t know if anyone noticed I wasn´t around all week...I was away visiting my grandpa out in the country...I thought I would have internet since I brought a 3G USB stick...but the signal was terrible and I could barely get to my email nevermind tea chat :?

I did bring some tea so I wasn´t tealess anyway :)

Thought maybe you were south of the border, the USA border that is. :wink:

I finish with what I call SLT, soggy leaf tea or the remains of the day. The last new tea of the day is Japanese, usually, but this will vary much more so than the first tea of the day.

Great TD began with prelim tasting of Aoi with the Mrs. Finished the TD with a blend of dribs and drabs sencha. And currently SLT!
