Quoted from Kristin
Longjing is my all-time favorite everyday tea.  I pay around $30.00 for almost 200 grams here in the US for a medium grade.  Being one of the Imperial teas of China, there are several grades of this tea available so you may be able to find a cheaper grade that still has good flavor, like Victoria mentioned.  I must say that I prefer Chinese tea over Japanese tea.  There are so many varieties of Chinese green tea, all with various flavor profiles that one could spend a lifetime exploring.
Kristin thank you for sharing this. It is so pleasant to know that you enjoy it. Expense-wise, I'll just switch from regarding green tea a cheap popular beverage to regarding it a supplement, no less than Deflect, Polyflora, et al. Truly it is no less important. I also spend a lot on the organic cranberry and black cherry concentrates imported from the U.S., and I don't complain!   Thanks again.

My goodness a post that I understand Lola oxo

The last kombucha that I brewing at the moment I put in the left over tea that was in the pot (without the strained bits) I'll see what it's like in about 3 weeks.

I'm also trying sip right in a finished kombucha soon.

I finally got it that permium green tea is very expensive.

...

There is a company here that imports premium teas from China, including Longjing green tea, which is the finest, tastiest green tea I've ever came across, as I like to say, beyond my dreams. They sell it in fancy boxes of 50 grams (bulk), which is apparently intended to "justify" the high price: the equivalent of $10 per box, which is $40 for 200 grams. This is extremely expensive, yet the taste is heavenly. I hope I can make do with 3 boxes a month and absorb the blow... If I can manage, this is most worth while.
I was complaining about the high cost of quality green tea.... Yesterday I told myself: Hold it!!! 7 years ago (until 30 June 2006) I was spending at least $1.5 every working day on a cup of espresso longo, which amounts to at least  $33 a month!!! Totally ridiculous, my recent complaints. The Chinese manufacturer names this Longjing tea no less than "The Guanyin"   Well, I too feel that it's a blessed tea. It is truly taking me somewhere very very good.   (tears of thanks, obviously)

It's all about perspective, 8 years ago i was having maybe 5 double espresso cappuccinos in various coffee shops all made from whole milk with a cake perhaps every other time. at a cost of about £10-15 perday
