Mainichi o-cha o nomimasu.
I think my Japanese teacher blew a brain gasket when she learned that I drink Japanese green tea sans milk & sugar. I average about 6 cups a day (better measured as 2 servings of leaves). Back home, I also take my earl grey tea neat. I'm a tea addict in general.
And then there's matcha...if it's green and tastes like vegetables, I'll love it, and this tea is just that. It's somewhat cheaper over here. Everything here is so damn expensive, but I'll probably be bringing back lots of matcha anyways, to make lemon & matcha pound cake and matcha cookies (you can tell that I already miss having an oven).
