Lipton tea is like powder. I much prefer a full leaf tea, and have come to enjoy Revolution Tea who offer a pure organic variety.

I fully enjoy Makaibari Green from www.sensibiliteasonline.com
It's incredibly smooth. Not too grassy, not too astringent. Just nice. They have Makaibari Green with Ginger and a Makaibari Green with Mint and a Green Chai made with Makaibari Green that are also all wonderful. This tea is organic, fair trade and biodynamic.

I wanted to know if anyone has tried Wulong tea? And if I should be prepared to "run" to the restroom??

According to ``the tea lady'' at SensibiliTeas in Glens Falls, Wulong is just a commerical name for oolong tea that comes from the Wuyi region of China. It might be best to research prices, as the commercialized version might be priced much higher. Your health benefits come from the tea ... not the pacakaging! Look for an organic version whenever possible. It shouldn't make you run to the rest room any more often than any other tea. Hope this helps!

I don't know it to have any weight losing properties, but I've never used for that purpose. For weight loss, I've always turned to Pu Erh or Oolong teas. SensibiliTeas
( www.sensibiliteasonline.com ) has a great tasting Pu Erh called Immortal Nectar 1997, and a good variety of oolongs. The one ``the tea lady'' mentions most for weight loss and cholestrol reduction is Immortal Nectar or Wuyi Oolong Organic.(Immortal Nectar is also organic) Immortal Nectar isn't on the website, but she does have it in the sho. She'll sell you anything she has in the shop. Just email her.

Try sanpin tea. It's my favorite green tea.

Apparently the Okinawans drink it religiously and they are the healthiest and longest-lived

people on the planet.

It is better than wulong.

I recommend the Okinawa Way sanpin tea -- it's organic, very high quality and tastes great.

You can buy it from the Okinawa Way website: www.okinawaway.com

I prefer a good grade of powdered matcha ( http://www.matchashop.com ) green tea.

But it may be like comparing apples to oranges... I'm sure there are some good brands of loose leaf green tea out there too.

oolong or wulong is NOT green tea, its oolong... its almost a inbetween of green and black teas. and its also very good.... also, they are not brands, they are types of tea.

that aside, i usually like my green tea, the color green, since i usually drink oolong when i drink seriously... and you will usually find these types in japanese brands
