CostCo goes Japanese

In the US if you get green tea on the go, without ordering it from some web site you usually get poor quality roasted leaves. A few times over the years I have been given Kirkland ( CostCo ) brand green tea and it was suspiciously green instead of gold colored. Now I know why. A friend at work gave ...

Re: The art of Kung fu tea

I thought this thread would be about the bubble tea chain "Kung Fu Tea".

Sounds interesting. I would love to see Chicago. It would have been nicer if they didn't pick winter time...in Chicago.

8 Popular Tea Bag Companies That Contain Illegal Amounts of Deadly Pesticides

The moderators of the Tea Forum On Reddit deleted this article when I tried to post it. Discussing it with them made no difference. First they claimed it was "click bait", until I pointed out the information came from the CBC in Canada. Then they said health discussions were against the rules. The f...

Re: Celestial Seasonings Tour & The Emperor's Choice Blend

Boulder businesses were very loyal to their locally produced brands. I saw celestial seasonings and a brand of chocolate bar everywhere. I didn't get a chance to go there but there was a celestial seasonings themed cafe at the university. I too had a co-op where I went away to college such a blessin...

Re: Celestial Seasonings Tour & The Emperor's Choice Blend

Thank you for this. It helps me to understand why I see so many boxes of Celestial Seasonings blends in people's home, but see them drinking other hot beverages almost all of the time. They buy it for the emotions connected to stocking their first apartment etc. I find how open the company is, quit...

Celestial Seasonings Tour & The Emperor's Choice Blend

A few weeks ago I was in Boulder Colorado visiting family. I discovered that Celestial Seasonings was located about a quarter mile from my hotel. Of course, I ate in the company cafeteria ( free tea refills ), went on the company tour, and enjoyed their extensive gift shop. Their building in Boulder...

Re: The next matcha?

Well, I had that crap from Republic of Tea that thankfully the good people of the forerunner of this forum told me was not typical of decent matcha, so I didn't quit. I then had something good from o-cha.com a long time ago, but don't remember what. Lately I've been using something called Ujitawara ...

The next matcha?

I will be buying matcha again very soon. Probably from O-cha.com ( I like their stuff, have an account, etc ). What is there to try with matcha? If you try something different, what do you get that is different? If you spend more money, what do you get for the extra money? What if you are not a supe...

Homage to my deceased matcha bowl

Homage to my Kierros Matcha Bowl from Teavana. Many years of enjoyment. It shattered this morning when I dropped it. For years I wanted to buy copies, but the company stopped making it and nobody else, at least on the Internet, was offering glass match bowls. Luckily, as of this morning, there are n...

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hey all, I just found out about TeaForum.org when I visited the "other place". Glad for the invitation. Glad to be here. How long have you been drinking tea? Probably for about 10 years. Like most Americans I didn't particularly care for it one way when I was younger as all I was exposed to was crap...
