Only 44 Google hits[edit]

Why are there only 44 Google hits for the Chinese name of this tea? Badagnani 04:40, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

You'll get over 3000 times as many results if you spell it "苦丁茶". — Chameleon 01:10, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
Also because it taste nasty and few people drink it for fun ;) Sjschen 14:57, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
Search not "Ku Ding tea", but "Kuding Tea".--Freetrashbox (talk) 11:19, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Tisane[edit]

Why is tea classified as a "tisane"? it is just made up of the leaf including a bit of stem. Also, the term does not seem from Chinese origin and thus I don't find it appropriate. The tea is (normally) served pure as other flavors are easily lost in the strong flavor of this tea. The introductory paragraph is unclear and does not use good style IMO. I will correct it later unless anyone can affirm that KuDing indeed falls under "tisane"J.Dong820 (talk) 03:07, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Kuding is a tisane because the leaves do not come from Camellia Sinensis. Only the drink made from leaves of C. Sinensis can be called tea. -- Sjschen (talk) 14:18, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
Hmm that makes sense, thanks for the info bit! I was not aware of the exact definition of "tea".J.Dong820 (talk) 03:28, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
