If you include Genmai, then me too. The added flavor of the rice has weaned me away from Sencha.

28 oz. on the way to work, 28 oz. during work, and another 28 oz. on the way home - minimum when we are having these streaks of 100+ F. days.

I Love green tea, too. I just drink it plain because I don't know how to sweeten it. But I think I prefer it that way.

I do love green tea but I prefer having it in loose leaf only nothing else.

I don't know why but I don't like cold green tea. I always prefer it hot. If I want cold tea, I prefer mugi-cha

Could anyone tell me what "green tea" refers to? Is it 抹茶 or 緑茶? These have almost nothing in common. Thanks!

I think this depends on where the poster is. I have found, far too often, that "green tea" in the US refers to something that doesn`t even exist in Japan.
Ultra-sweetened "tea" with supposedly healthy "oriental" additives. For example things like this;

Original Brand AriZona Beverage Co.

100% Natural LIPTON

Etc. All sweetened, sometimes quite heavily. It is fascinating that there is a market and need for "diet green tea".

Chances are when someone says they love green tea, they are not talking about either 緑茶 or 抹茶, but something like this.
The US green tea boom happened after I left the states, so it is weird and shocking to encounter painfully sweet "green tea".

Make the move!
