Aug 12th 2009 8:15AM This article may seem like a good introduction to tea but if you really want to learn, don't take it lightly that they spoke of those who prefer loose leaf tea. The reason is that many types of loose leaf tea stand alone without additives like milk and sweeteners. And they're usually good without being blended with other flavors. The reality is tea is often blended to mask an inferior quality. So go ahead and look for loose leaf tea that isn't blended and don't mix anything with it. Not only will your palate thank you but your body will get the most health benefits. http://www.jasonwitt.org
Jul 16th 2009 3:17AM This is a great story about Hong Kong. It's good for a tea lover like me to learn a little about the East-meets-West flavor of the city. And milk in their tea? Without any historical ceremony? Sounds pretty English to me. I don't know where else in Asia milk would be so common or even available for most people. Personally, I prefer the tea without milk to enjoy its natural taste. I guess I'd like to know about a city like this in Taiwan or mainland China. http://www.jasonwitt.org
