Japanese Tea

Japanese Tea
Japan offers a rich variety of teas. Premium quality sencha, or green tea, is made from fresh young leaves, steamed and dried to produce a greenish-yellow tea with a slightly bitter flavour. The extremely popular bancha, meanwhile, is an everyday tea made from coarser leaves harvested later in the season. Other common varieties include genmaicha (green tea mixed with roasted brown rice), hojicha (low caffine, roasted bancha) and matcha, the bright green powdered tea used in the tea ceremony and made from a special variety of tea called tencha.
