Teas of Japan From around the world

Tea was first brought to Japan from China in 805 by Buddhist monks on envoy from their emperor. Tea planting was encouraged and trade in the product grew. Japans history is steeped in tea with the most obvious link being to the Japanese Tea Ceremony which is still practised all over the world today. Japanese tea is grown much of the time beneath blankets in order to slow the growth and thus allow more nutrients to be pulled up through the soil allowing for a nutritious and pungent liquor. With “Matcha Tea”, the leaf is ground and whisked in order for the consumer to not only ingest the liquor but the leaf too – allowing for further nutritional benefit.
