I Tried It - Doesn't Mean I Like It

I lived in Japan for a couple of years, so to go without trying green tea would be next to downright impossible, unless you refused to hang out with Japanese people, and in that case (I have heard stories in Tokyo), maybe it would be possible.

I tried it hot, I tried it cold, I tried it with lemon in it, with soda water, many varieties that you can get in the funny and numerous vending machines but could not find one type I liked enough to stick with it.

Since I don't usually drink tea or coffee - I can say this - the good variety (the high end teas) can have quite a bit of caffein in them as I would get very hyper if I drank a few small glasses when I was visiting family or friends.

I have had green tea here in North America (Earl Grey green tea comes to mind) that I actually liked but while I was in Japan, I just could not find one type that I could like and live with. To each there own I guess - I have heard it is good for you, just never much cared for the flavour of it.
