I'm a simple person..




















A tip from me for all those 'Cold Japanese Green Tea' fans that know the real stuff when they taste it!

Waitrose.

You're more likely to have a Waitrose near you than a China Town or a Japanese supermarket. And if you like Cold Japanese Green Tea, but dissappointed by the so called 'cold green tea' available in the UK, then head for Waitrose. At 79p a can, its a tad expensive, (you can buy a regular bottle of 'Oi! Ocha' for 89p in the Japan Centre, Piccadilly - more for your money), but I was gladly relieved to taste.. its the proper stuff!! Not the sweetened rubbish that you can find in Pret A Manger, or the cold Chinese Green Tea that you can buy in some other supermarkets, but... the proper stuff! Cold Sencha ^^

...Guess where you'll find me at lunchtimes from now on..! :)

I never really liked green tea before going to Japan. When I tasted cold green tea my face scrunched up and I never took another sip. I think its because most cold drinks available in the UK are sweet. I also think that’s why so many of the cold green tea’s available in the UK have a sweet taste ? as most people expect a certain taste from a cold drink. However, after living there for a while and eating their food everyday I think my tastes changed ? green tea became yummy & now I prefer it cold than hot. Green tea with western foods doesn’t go. I don’t know why, it just don’t taste as nice! Back in England, hot green tea doesn’t appeal to me as it did in Japan, but Im loving the cold stuff! On a hot day, a coke or a orange juice don’t refresh you & quench your thirst like a cold green tea. Trust me, when you get to japan, you’ll understand and be converted. If only because theres not much other choice of cold drinks in Japan…!
