中國 綠茶茶包 : Chinese Green Tea

Not long until Christmas now! (´・ω・)っ由 

Look how festive that photo is. My Brother is really into photography for well over a year now, this was taken last year at Christmas. Last year at Christmas was pretty crazy, as I was leaving for Japan the following day. So this year I am staying at home in England - though I feel a little saddened to miss ringing in the New Year in Japan. (/□\*)

After KanonxKanon VIP, I suddenly wanted to buy green tea - again. (* ̄▽ ̄)ノ There is a love-hate relationship I have with green tea. I'm typically British, I love my tea with milk and sugar. So green tea is a little out the comfort zone, let alone a Chinese green tea. But there are so many health benefits of drinking green tea! ヽ(^∇^*)ノ 
 I managed to find a brand called "Sea Dyke" who sold a box of 20 tea bags for 99p. It's a Chinese brand, and far cheaper than the regular brands out there that happen to provide green tea in their long list of teas. It comes in a cute little box, simple but it's only tea, we don't need some fancy character for tea. Each tea bag is individually wrapped for freshness, I guess it also stops the little strings from getting tangled when exported.
My Mother always swaps our mugs for December, so we all end up having 'Festive' mugs for Christmas, perhaps Santa will get me a Penguin one, like Kanon? o(≧∀≦)o
Green tea is pretty easy to make, just add water, and wait a few minutes, depending on how strong you like your tea. Although I am pretty impatient myself so my tea always ends up being weak. It doesn't have a strong aroma like most teas, I've found that Tetley Green Tea had a strange aroma that really put me off in the past. The tea tastes rather nice, although my sweet tooth is pleading at me right now for something sugary and it has a strong bitter after taste but overall it does taste nice!

Overall lets give it: ★★★★☆ simply because I want to try another brand from Japan I read about. Does anyone have any other recommendations?


  1. Oh I love this brand of green tea!
    I've had it once when I was on holiday and I really liked its taste.
    It's such a shame they don't sell this in Holland (;;)

  2. Aww, do they not at all?
    How about trying in any Asian Supermarkets perhaps?
    I read one review, but they were from America, so maybe it is limited?

  3. I like putting honey in my green tea, so maybe that'll please your sweet tooth? ^^

    By the way, thank you for the follow!

  4. Oh, that is a good tip!
    I will definitely try this out.

    No problem! Your blog is very cute. ^^
