Cant speak for him, but Im still here. Your reappearance, actually,
is a good occasion for bringing up this scary Greenpeace report on the
levels of toxic agrochemicals they found in commercial teas they bought
at various locations in China:

I would love to see someone try to show roughly how harmful the
pesticide levels Greenpeace found actually are. It would be nice, of
course, to see zeroes, but that may not be practical: even an organic
farm cant prevent stuff drifting in from its neighbors.

it's been about five years since I posted to this board. I'm dissapointed to see it so bare. I'd love to know where everybody's gone.

Google kicked me off and I didn't bother to struggle back on. Now I'm
refusing to willingly submit to their new and much worse groups so
apparently they've put me back on where I was a year ago. Some things
you just don't question. My teas now-iced teas for the summer- from
Upton-Java and sweet orange black. I haven't found what I consider a
good green iced tea yet. Toci

You could just use a real newsreader and news server. Life is much better
that way.

I still read here but haven't posted in a good while.

I'm drinking a nuywara eliya bop from San Francisco Herb and Tea company.
Like a lot of the lower altitude Ceylons, it has a lot of clove sorts of
brown spice notes.

One of the problems with mass spectro technology today is that it can detect
a few molecules of something... and if you take a sample of anything anywhere
in the world, there's a good chance of there being a few molecules of anything
you can name in it.

A lot of the nastier pesticides are oil-soluble (partly good to help make
them stick to plants and not was off) and won't dissolve in a cup, which is
good, but there's some pretty ugly stuff out there and I don't think anyone
really has a good grip on how tiny trace amounts of some of the nastier
organometallics really affect anyone over the long term.

The ceylons are my favorite, though if I want to really wake up, I
have an african- Malwi, I believe. Toci

Yes. I'm at the stage where if they're willing to call it organic,
I'm willing to drink it. Toci

I've found a peppermint flavoed green tea that tastes good. What do

Good enough. Potable on a hot day- no ice, but out of the
refrigerator. Toci

Most of the ceylons are too heavy for drinking without milk, but the higher
altitude Nuwara Eliya is very good and often has some interesting spice notes
that blend nicely with the tannic flavour.

I did like the Malawi BOP that Upton's used to have for a while, but the
current Malawi tea that they are stocking is not as interesting.
