Hi there Ti, about the green tea powder.. I get my stash from various Asian Gourmet stores in Perth - the last time I got some, they were from a store called Shop 88 in Northbridge ( next to Good Fortune BBQ). But you live over in the Eastern States, don't you? Maybe you could try some Asian/Japanese Gourmet stores over there. Good Luck!
