As mentioned previously in these pages, Jennifer Lopez and Lindsay Lohan are both said to be green tea fanciers, to the extent of having their faves shipped to them when they are on the road.

Now, if that's not exciting enough for you, then how about the recent report that Viggo Mortensen, of Lord of the Rings fame, suffers from a tea "addiction"? Actually Viggo is fond of yerba mate and apparently will not travel anywhere without his own mate (drinking gourd) and bombilla (straw).

I love it! I just stumbled upon your blog and love the idea of a "Tea Blog". I myself always starts my day with freshly brewed Jade Silk Oolong green tea ($95 a pound). Am also in the midst of planning/contemplating/hoping to open a Tea Apothecary-type shop or possibly a Tea Bar? But definitely not a Starbuck-ized type of establishment! Think old world apothecary or a tea house in old Shanghai.
