Q: I'm looking to make a comprehensive list of tea available in China.

Let me know the name in Chinese (if possible), pinyin and English (if existent). Describe the tea, colour, leaves, etc. Let me know if it is good or bad.

Ok, I found this page, it has all the major types of tea, with the characters. It doesn't have pinyin, but if you use firefox, look for the application called perapera-kun. I don't know if you have heard of it, but if you haven't, once it's activated you can put your mouse over characters and it will give you the pinyin as well as the translation.

As for types I have tried, green tea is a given, I'm sure you already know all about that one. The only kind I know the name of is Dragonwell, which is supposed to be the best, but I thought it tasted like grass. Oolong is halfway between green tea and black tea. I like that one the most because it gives a sort of refreshing feel, and I personally find it to be the most pleasant out of the teas I have tried unsweetened. I've had Jasmine flavored tea. I can't say it tasted very different, I think it is more about how it smells, since I think they brew the actual flowers. I also had some kind of black tea that I can't remember the name of, but I think black tea is the worst unsweetened.

Sorry I can't help more, I'm not a big tea drinker.

A:It happened to me, once ... in 2014 or 15 ... Plane from RP city (Tianjin) had a delay and I came to the exit (Luohu) some 7 hours after the RP expiration day.I had an excuse, but still I was put in a side office for some 3h and then cops had a short talk with '.. and make sure, it will never happened again! ..' and I was let go without anything on my record. At least, at new Z visa reentry nobody ever mentioned anything about delayed exit. However, I had a bad feeling at following Z visa application ...It's wiser to exit at least a day ahead of the RP expiration day. -- icnif77
