Green tea has long been unique to China and Japan. Today, the green teas are spread all over the world. Sencha, Longjing, Gyokuro and Matcha are names that will soon sound as familiar in the West as Ceylon, Darjeeling and Earl Grey. Even powdered tea, which was big in China already a thousand years ago, and which is part of the Japanese tea ceremony, has started to spread as a delicious and healthy drink in trendy cafes and restaurants. Thanks to its taste and freshness, green tea is an incredibly versatile beverage.
Good quality green tea often has a fresh, green flavor. The leaves can be used at least two to three times. Just pour in new water. The time that the leaves are allowed to draw can increase slightly each time. The teas presented here can also be found under the respective countries.
