Very good question, Steph. You beat me to it.

Under this category, topics about muliple teas for instance, or tea in general. Topics more about tea than what one would normally find under Miscellany, yet they do not quite fit under any of the Tea Topics.

Clear as mud? :lol:

I thought blue tea was considered to be oolong? Or am I misinformed??

How long has this forum been sitting here blank?

I don't think I've ever clicked on it before.

Maybe there is, we've just not found it yet.

Or maybe it's to cater for the pedant who doesn't want their Chinese red tea to be confused with black tea - god forbid we discuss Liu Bao and Qimen in the same sub fora.

I've never heard oolong referred to as blue tea before. That's interesting.

Wow, I had no idea what Kombucha was so I looked it up on wikipedia. That's pretty interesting...
