Paul, you must try the Choice Organic Genmaicha. It's our house tea - green tea with roasted organic brown rice. OMG delicious and full of beneficial antioxidants! Meaty, delicious and filling. Fresher in your mouth than coffee and fresher feeling inside the body. It's like starting every day with a spa. ;-)
Do you ever wonder about pouring boiling water over little plastic bags and then drinking the result? I like the new fancy loose tea bags, but they do cause my mind to wander given all we're learning about endocrine disrupting chemicals leaching out of nalgene bottles, bottled water, and the like. And as another compulsive tea drinker, I would have to potential to take in a LOT of whatever is there. Maybe you should have Science look into it.
@2: the bags are made of corn, not plastic. (/doing my job)
I'm assuming these can be found at Whole Foods, right? I love Jasmine tea, so I may have to check these out.
I agree about the Genmaicha, it's my choice for work. Plus it goes well with lunch.
Of course, while corn is definitely better than plastic, there are supply concerns in world markets for corn.
I know you can get some of these at PCC as well, and also at Fred Meyer (in the organic aisle).
I have the handful I took lined up on my desk at work, waiting to see me through the afternoon. I am muy excited about the jasmine green tea. Thanks, Abby!
The teas are really good.
It's odd, though; I haven't been drinking nearly as much tea recently as I used to when I was in school. Maybe pounding six cups of tea a day for five years burned me out.
@4: they'll be in Whole Foods in October. Until then, the website is the place to get them (Paul linked to it).
Jessica, Greg, and Paul: you're welcome. Glad you enjoyed!
