-- What is green tea? --

Green tea refers to unfermented tea leaves wherein fermentation is stopped right after picking.
“Green tea” is the general term given to all kinds of Japanese tea. “Sencha” or regular green tea,
“Gyokuro” or the highest-quality green tea and “Houjicha” or roasted green tea all fall under the generic term “green tea.”

-- "Sencha" or regular tea --

Sencha is the most widely drunk tea by the Japanese. Freshly-picked tea leaves are steamed and roasted,
and the fermentation process is stopped by the heat from steaming and roasting.
Before picking, tea leaves are allowed to bathe in the sun, and through photosynthesis,
the tea’s astringent components called catechin increase, resulting in a tea with a slightly astringent, refreshing scent and a clean, clear taste.

-- Recommended way to make this tea --
1.Place 1 tea spoon. (about 5g) in tea pot.

2.Add 150 to 220 ml of boiling water.

3.Brew for about 30 sec.
