Description

Green Tea is a semi-oxidized or non-oxidized tea. The processing method determines the level of oxidation. Green tea is most popularly grown in China, Japan and Taiwan. It is becoming increasingly popular to grow in India and Sri Lanka, as well as parts of Africa. Green tea is considered one of the healthiest kinds of teas because it has high concentrates of the amino acid L-Theanin, an adaptogen that stimulates the part of the brain that calms and simultaneously the part of the brain that calms.

The vegetal taste of the tea combined with the rich, roasted aroma of the rice has resulted in its recent popularity and mass consumption in Japan and now around the world. It is opulent in Japanese tradition, available in any teahouse or shop and often paired with food.

The name means “Brown Rice Tea” in Japanese. Originally, the frugal communities of Japan would add rice to bulk expensive Green Tea. It then became popular with people who found themselves between meals for long periods of time, either because they were fasting or for religious purposes.
