    tea lover too <3
    since it is the best thing to drink in Japan and you get it to basically every meal or daytime, I became addicted!
    So I brought some nice Matcha and pure green tea of good quality, some chinese white tea and tea flowers (and some english tea to drink as "milk tea") :D
    Not that much a fan of flavoured kinds though… prefere it pure and natural..
     Anyone else drinks Mugicha in summer? ;)

      I haven’t tried mugicha yet! I’m fond of genmai and bancha– in fact, there’s a bottle of chilled bancha on my desk right now. XD White tea is lovely, and matcha should go in everything, cakes, drinks, biscuits… *shouts* EVERYTHING!ò_ó/

    Oh yea, I’m a notorious tea drinker as well. I’ve recently tried Dilmah’s Ginger & Honey flavored Ceylon black tea, I think it’s nice and well balanced between the 3 flavors.
    Some years ago I needed jaw surgery after an accident, and I was advised to refrain from drinking tea for a while because it would disrupt the healing process of the mouth lining. I had noticeable withdraw effects during the first days I stopped, feeling a bit shaky and having difficulties to concentrate. I ended up drinking cups of plain hot water, to get a certain feeling of comfort.

      Notorious tea drinkers of the world unite! (UGH, what awful news to be given after having had surgery!! Hope all is well now.)

        With a bit of bone taken elswere from my body and some titanium implants, it all healed quite nicely.

      I guess we end up with a load of caffeine in our bodies without even thinking about it. So you couldn’t drink any fluids except for water? Dang, hope it wasn’t in winter. :(

      • Moom says:

        Like I said, I settled for drinking cups of plain hot water, as a  kind of substitute for comforting experience of tea.

    Zou je Chinese achtergrond hier iets mee te maken hebben? Of is het ‘Hollandse’ theedrinken doorslaggevender?
    (Achtergrond: ik ben een Limburgse koffiedrinker. Thee drinken is iets voor ‘Hollanders’)

      Er zit misschien wel iets in de nabijheid van de kust (zeehavens, stapelplaatsen voor exotische goederen) Het uiterste noorden van Duitsland kent ook een echte theecultuur: Losse thee in een porseleinen servies, opschenken door een zeefje, nachtzwart, sterk van smaak en geserveerd met room.

      • Tze says:

        Ze hebben hier ook ‘Friese’ thee in de supermarkten liggen, dat kan samenhangen met de door jouw beschreven theecultuur. Hmm, met room… nog niet geprobeerd, maar het klinkt lekker!

      Ik ken het verschil, werk met Zeeuwen en Friezen en Limburgers hier, die corrigeren dat snel. :p …Nah, Pickwick zal toch weinig met China te maken hebben. :D
