JAPANESE TEA TIPS
Shizuoka: An 800-Year Old Tea-Growing City
Located at the foot of Mt. Fuji, Shizuoka has the ideal climate for growing tea and is the largest tea producer in Japan. Since 1859, the year Yokohama harbor opened for foreign trade, export of Japanese tea has been steadily increasing. Increased demand has resulted in excellent quality control and consistency. Various new blends of tea are constantly being tested to satisfy different tastes throughout the world.
Healthy Mind & Body: The Virtues of Japanese Tea
Tea has no calories, but contains a number of nutrients, such as theanine, catechins, flavonoids, and vitamins. In our modern society, people are constantly seeking ways to obtain these healthful ingredients. Why not drink a delicious beverage that fights drowsiness and fatigue, increases metabolism, burns cholesterol, and protects you from cancer. And all this with no calories!
Japanese Tea: A Natural Drink in Its Own Right
There are primarily two ways of producing tea, depending on whether the leaves are roasted, and then fermented, or just steamed. Oolong tea is made from partly fermented leaves. Black tea is made from completely fermented and dried red leaves. However, to make green tea, fresh tea leaves are steamed immediately after being harvested to prevent the leaves from losing the color and nutritional values. This is the most natural way of making tea, resulting in a delicious tea and a natural medicine.
Types of Teas: Choices for Different Occasions
Many types of teas are available depending on the part of the tea leaf used and harvested conditions. There is a tea for every occasion. For example, Gyokuro, one of the most expensive and sophisticated teas, is intended for special guests and special occasions, and Bancha is a popular everyday tea that families enjoy daily after meals.
