Delicious Japanese tea At Hana Tea House
Japanese Tea comes in many shapes and sizes. Perhaps the most famous is Matcha Tea, which involves workers grinding the leaves into a fine powder. This is the primary type used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony. Another well-known variety is Japanese Sencha Green Tea, a staple in the lives of thousands said to account for 78% of Japan’s overall consumption.
Arguably the noblest of them all is Gyokuro Green Tea. The leaves used in its making are left in the shade for at least two weeks, thereby reducing photosynthesis. With less photosynthesis comes higher chlorophyll content, which in turn gives the leaf a dark-green colour and distinctly sweet flavour. Then there is Bancha, a typically lower-grade Tea, though not when you buy it from us.
Kukicha, meanwhile, is undoubtedly the least conventional choice. The Tea is not only the product of the leaf but also the stems and stalks of the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant. It goes by several names, including “Twig Tea” and “Bōcha.” Finally, we have Turmeric Root Tea, which is a herbal infusion most popular on the island of Okinawa. People there believe that it contributes to their world-renowned longevity!
Here at Hana Tea House, we have a gorgeous range of delicious Japanese tea such as our Matcha tea powder for you to enjoy. Japanese tea is the ideal everyday green tea thanks to its low caffeine content and high levels of antioxidants. Therefore, it’s well worth adding it into your tea selection at home.
