Green tea has been enjoyed since ancient times in China (the origin of tea) and Japan, where it is most frequently drunk. Green tea has also gained in popularity among Europeans and Americans in recent years for its health-giving properties.
When water is added to green tea leaves, the resulting beverage retains the color of the freshly-picked leaves. Green tea therefore offers an even fresher, more natural flavor.
Green teas are categorized according to type and production method, and flavors vary. In general, however, green tea is made in China by roasting the tealeaves in a pot, offering a refreshing, aromatic flavor. In Japan, the green tealeaves are steamed, producing a sweet, delicate flavor.
Oolong tea is a Chinese tea positioned between green tea and black tea. It has a sophisticated flavor derived from complex production methods. Many types of oolong tea with long histories have been passed down by Buddhist priests due to their outstanding effectiveness.
Oolong tea is also referred to as an aromatic tea, and it features popular flavors rich in exquisite aroma. Depending on the production area, product type, picking season, degree of oxidation and fermentation, roasting and other conditions, a variety of flavors can be enjoyed. Ranging from refreshing, invigorating flavors to mellow, soothing flavors, all with their own distinctive appeal.
Black tea is among the most widely enjoyed teas in the world. Originating in China in the 17th century, black tea spread rapidly throughout the world and found great acceptance in the West. Black tea is a known favorite, especially among the British, who have developed a rich culture around tea.
One of the features of black tea is its wide array of production areas and drinking methods. Black teas are produced with different characteristics according to the production area, tea estate and the season when the leaves are picked. Although flavors vary, high-quality black teas abound in natural aroma, flavor and nutrients that are reminiscent of flowers, fruits and herbs.
Another appeal of black teas is that they can be used to create a variety of different drinks. Not only by adding milk or lemon but also with the addition of fruits, herbs, spices and liquors. Iced tea is another popular option.
Matcha is a traditional Japanese drink with a history dating back hundreds of years. The tea leaves are grown in the shade to produce a sweet aroma. The leaves are then ground with a stone mill to produce a fine green tea powder.
By drinking milled tea leaves, you can absorb vitamins, minerals, catechin, theanine and many other nutrients.
In both East and West, drinks brewed from tealeaves and other plant leaves and seeds have been used as medicines since ancient times.
