So I want to try something special tonight rather than my usual green tea and earl. Anyone want to recommend something light?

>> No.8681199


Green tea's a pretty big category. You could try... Dong Ding oolong? It's light, sweet and inexpensive.

>> No.8681233

You should be more specific. Green tea is almost a world unto itself, but since the only other thing you named was Earl Grey, could it be that you aren't very well versed in tea?

You could try Phoenix Mi Lan Xiang, if you want something that has flavor but isn't black.

Zairai Sencha (or most Sencha for that matter) is a sweet, light, Japanese green which might be closer to what you meant.

Or like >>8681199 san said, Ding Dong is very light. Though without the right teaware it might be hard to get much flavor at all from it, at least in my experience it's a rather finicky oolong.

Earl Grey is my favorite, but lately I've been more into coffee (mainly due to lack of time to sit and tea).

Guess I'll just buy it online or head into the city. I really prefer light and flavorful though.

Personally, I'm not really wild about any of his oolongs. The stuff I've got is from redblossom which is sweeter and more floral, but still rather overpriced.

Have you bought from teaspring before? What did you think of their stock, if so?

I picked some of his Tsukigase Zairai up awhile ago, but only becuase he was out of Hon Yama at the time. For something I picked up on a lark, I rather enjoy it. I've had better Sencha, but it has it's niche.
I don't know what else to say, worth picking up to try anyway.

Teaspring is pretty decent from what I've tried so far. Most of their stuff isn't organic, and the few that are... are questionable, because they're certified by Chinese organic organizations.

Probably going to be getting my Chinese tea from them exclusively though, as Hojo's stuff might be grown without pesticide, but it's not anywhere near worth the premium price it commands.

I want to buy some japanese tea. I'm a bit sick of chinese tea, even though it's good it's all I see around here.
I know a specialized shop that has some, I'll buy it soon... too bad I'm on a pretty hardcore medication right now and tea doesn't sit too well with it.

No, but I bought some yesterday.

Seattle's international district is... very tempting to spend very large amounts of money in.

>> No.8682523

If you want something light, maybe try an asamushi. The leaves are steamed lighter than even normal sencha. Perhaps some gyokuro?

I've had neither, so I can't really give any specifics. Maybe I'll get some for myself this year.
