Regular old green tea toothpaste is easy enough to find. Still, when I walked into a trendy department store that looks like a cross between Ikea and Urban Outfitters, I certainly not expect to find three kinds of tea toothpaste. They offered Uji Matcha (from the famed matcha-producing region near Kyoto), Darjeeling Tea and "Ichibanzumi Greentea [SIC]" (or "first flush" green tea). The line of toothpaste also included wild (and, sometimes, wildly unappealing) flavors like Indian curry. (Don't get me wrong -- I love curry -- but in a toothpaste? No.)
