Powdered Matcha green tea has 5 times more caffeine than
coffee does. Is it available in China?

Dannon Rhudy to me
7:59 pm (4 minutes ago) Tony, sorry about Trevor. Keep an eye on him,
know if something like that is minor or major. And,
glad you're watching what goes in your mouth....
I liked your basket forms on the blog - the handles
looked a little rough, though, for, ummmm, handling.
You sound like you're having an amazing time. Stay
safe. - Dannon
Dannon: I like that title too ruff for handling. Never know when I may use
that. they say the pot is the person and no disquise is possible. so I'll
wear you're title proudly.
Yep, so far i'm fine doing a pepto bismal, acidophilus and a Multi vitamin
every day. I also have a drink from my snake bite kit each night which I am
sure is helping. John's old teacher Joe Zeller just arrived with bottle of
Woodford Reserve and I was invited down for a course in snake bite
the coffe Bev Walker sent me is in my cup right now. It's all gone after
this and it's green tea. I may pee my pants trying to get enuff caffeine in
my system in the morning.
All the best,

Matcha is usually a South American drink. Tony
"might" be able to find it there (we can order it here), but he should
instead ask his
Chinese language teacher for the appropriate substitute for
caffeinated coffee (what they drink), or just the Chinese word equivalent
for caffeine and go to one of their stores for it.
The Chinese use as much caffeine as Americans do.
In fact, some of the catalogs we get sell Chinese "high energy" drinks
here (printed in Chinese with English labels stuck on)
that contain more caffeine in each one than four Jolt colas.
on my 7th cup of "hi-test" this morning

No coffee; I fell back on good old instant. Nescafe has the market in
Other than that you can find a good coffee house downtown. La Defense was
a good coffee house. I went there had a cup of coffee and a meal and they
gave me two coupons for coffee the next time I visited. In ended up with
about 100 coupons before I left. Felt like a millionaire. I gave them
away to a friend when I left.
This place has a great karaoke bar

Tony knows what I am talking about.
It is powdered green tea, developed in China around the 12th century,
Song/Sung period. It is much stronger than leaf tea, because you are
ingesting the entire plant and not throwing the leaves away.
I understand they lost the tradtion in China, but thought they
might make it for export or for tourists.
Powdered tea, stored and traded as tea bricks, was invented in China
during the Song Dynasty (960-1279). Preparation and consumption of
powdered tea was formed into a ritual by Zen (Chan) Buddhists.
Zen Buddhism, and powdered tea along with it, were brought
to Japan in 1191 by the monk Eisai. Powdered tea was slowly forgotten
in China, but 16th century tea master Sen no Rikyu formulated the
rules of Japanese tea ceremony, specifying matcha as the correct tea
