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:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
