Welcome to the happy green tea cup!
I am so excited to share with you many of the things you want and need to know about how to make and enjoy green tea, especially if you think you don’t like it! Here you will find green tea recipes, how to make a good cup of green tea, reviews of the best green teas to drink, information on possible health benefits of drinking green tea, and an entire section devoted specifically to one of my favorites- matcha powder (green tea).
And on top of all of that, I added a section called “Think while you Drink”– a place that I hope will feel like a soft little corner of the world for you to visit while you enjoy a few minutes of quiet tea time- filled with beautiful images, short readings, thoughtful quotes, random facts about curious things, and whatever else I come across that I think is worth sharing!
Although you will find plenty of information here on a variety of green tea topics (harvesting, processing, brewing, etc.) the primary goal of this website is not to make you a tea scholar, but instead to help you find, learn to make, and enjoy the best tasting green teas! So sit back and let me do the work for you- giving you all the details you need and if I’m lucky, a little bit of happiness to go with it!
I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious. – Albert Einstein
