I drank the last of my favourite green tea ever

My favourite green tea ever I took this photograph of the package of my favourite green tea ever (click to enlarge).  It was a gift to my girlfriend’s Dad, and it came from China. 

Today, I drank my last heartwarming mug, and those are my only leads in a quest to find some more.

Would some kind soul help me find some more of this wonderful tea?  Perhaps by even translating its name for me?

[Update: Is it possible, as per Gurry’s comment, that this is Japanese?]

    Thanks so much, Gurry… I am not sure, it could very well be Japanese.  I can’t read either language!

    Hi Rob,

    I have seen that brand before… don’t know where you can buy it (though maybe the Asian Market on Drury St. would be worth a try).  

    However, you have to take the Geen Tea Challange!  … I have a few boxes of my favourite green tea at home (Chinese Jasmine) … and will bring one into the office next week for you to try out next week!  Which one is better – you decide 🙂

    Is tea becoming the drink of choice of developers?

    I’d like that very much, Simon (blackmailing included)

    I just love green tea – I reckon it’s good for the chi, or something…

    What’s Red Bush tea?  No connection to Red Bull tea I’m hoping? 😉

    Colm, I’ll go hunting on Drury St and will update this when I do!  Thanks man!

    Hi Rob,

    This ‘高山茶’ is made in Chinese Taiwan, the name means tea leaves harvested at high altitude mountain.
