    I'm confused why some clothing lines do sizes 8 - 10 then leap to 12 - 14 and miss out 10 - 12.

    The more confusing thing is when I look at size guides some say i'm 12-14 and some suggest 8-10. does make me wonder what the correct sizes for lets say a 12 or a 10 is rather than brand guides telling me different things.

    BigPoppa, I haven't found many green teas in supermarkets that actually taste nice. Green tea only needs up to 30secs brew time and I tend to find the bags are rather bitter. Chinese gunpowder green is a popular green that can be found in a lot of shops, you only need a small amount of the leaves per pot or strainer. I'm much more of a fan of chinese white tea such as pai mu tan, this can be brewed for longer than green tea and tastes a bit sweeter.

    I've tried a few Japanese green teas before and they taste wonderful. I wouldn't be able to tell you what leaves where used though because at the time my Japanese reading was very bad, but I have to say they really know how to package and produce their tea right as the leaves still felt fresh. There are a few that I've tried in the UK but again they are from smaller shops or specialists.

    I also find that flavoured greens can be a bit strong, espically if it has jasmine in as this can be over powering. personally I like green and black tea mixes if I'm going for a fruit or flower flavour.

    cheers for the advice ! I think this is something I'm going to experiment a bit with. Passion was sparked after going into a specialist tea shop where they only sold teas like this and had special menus and tester selections etc. Very interesting and some were lovely.

    Things that confuse me -

    Why Ocean Finance think it's acceptable to advertise loans in the way they do - aimed at the moment at couples getting married.

    Yeeees, why not get in to a shed load of debt for your wedding. Great way to start married life with our 2345% APR......

    re green tea - Apparently the way it's processed means a higher concentration of pesticides. I can't stand regular without milk, but do much better with organic.

    re sizing - might it have anything to do with US to UK size conversions? I'm used to strange things happening around UK size 14, don't know about 12. http://www.landsend.co.uk/static/customerservice/size_charts/

    I'm permanently confused cause of health problems. No point in singling anything out. %-)

    Ridiculous isn't it. There need to be more restrictions on banks - WandA was fuming that back when he turned 18 and got a letter advertising credit cards/loans from his bank - so irresponsible.

    I love tea... Whittards do nice ones, a lovely white tea with pomigranite.

    For green tea... I quite like clipper teas.

    I agree, Clipper loose green tea is pretty good but i can also highly recommend Chinese gunpowder tea if you can find some.
