Green tea

Green tea is made from Camellia sinensis leaves that have not undergone the same withering and oxidation applied when processing Camellia sinensis into oolong tea and black tea. Green tea originated in China, but its production has spread to many countries in Asia.

Several varieties of green tea exist, which differ substantially due to the variety of the tea plant, growing conditions, horticulture, production processing, and time of harvest.

Green Tea (film)

Green Tea is a 2002 Chinese film. It was adapted from the novel Adiliya by the River by Jin Renshun. Shot in the summer of 2002, Green Tea was one of three films directed by Zhang Yuan that year (including the earlier I Love You and the subsequent Jiang Jie). The film was photographed by established Hong Kong-cinematographer Christopher Doyle, whose work gives Green Tea a more polished look than many of Zhang's earlier independent features.

Green Tea (radio show)

Green Tea is the title of a series of topical comedy pieces broadcast each weekend on RTÉ Radio 1, starring Oliver Callan.

It features President Michael D. Higgins shouting "Where's my box? Where’s my box?" before he goes to bed under his Seamus Heaney duvet, and unsuccessful presidential candidate David Norris as Higgins's vice-president. It also features Charlie Bird, Gerry Adams and Giovanni Trapattoni.

The Irish Times has described Green Tea as "essentially an extended version of Nob Nation", Callan's previous incarnation.

In October 2011, Callan was involved in a public altercation with Kerry GAA star and fashion columnist Paul Galvin, with media reporting that Callan had recently mimicked Galvin asking Taoiseach Enda Kenny to man-up by giving him a body-wax on Green Tea, and that Callan has also been making humorous references to his relationship with Gráinne Seoige. The altercation prompted an appearance by Callan on national television during which he came out as gay. Callan impersonated Galvin again on Green Tea the week after the incident.
