Main Types of Japanese Green Tea
Matcha is a fine green powder that dissolves in hot water. It also sparkles and has a relaxing fragrance. We can always find and savor it in Tea ceremonies. Matcha is still mistaken as green tea by some people because of its appearance and popularity. People love the flavor so much that they make it sweets like ice cream, chocolate, cakes, frappes, and more.
This tea came from roasted tea leaves. It creates a brownish hue and mild taste when hot water is poured. Japanese people across all generations enjoy Hojicha because of its taste, fragrance, and the warm, brown color it creates that reminds them of the fall season.
Sencha is usually served in most Japanese restaurants. It is quite popular because of its soothing and easy to drink qualities that Japanese people enjoy. Moreover, Sencha is rich in vitamin C, has a clear yellowish-green color, and a well-balanced flavor.
Genmaicha is a mixture of sencha tea and brown rice. The mixture creates a nutty flavor, and the toasted aftertaste makes it fascinating.
This type of tea is one of the finest blends in Japan. Gyokuro is unpopular outside Japan because of its seaweed taste and distinct flavor. Also, it is advisable to consume its richness in small amounts.
Konacha is a tea made out of tiny leaves. We can always find konacha in most sushi restaurants. They prefer Konacha because it is inexpensive and has a strong, flavorful taste.
This type of tea is created using mature tea leaves. Bancha sparkles in a golden color when mixed with hot water. Bancha is popular with the Japanese people for its delicate taste and soothing quality.
Apart from the aforementioned, Sobacha (from roasted buckwheat groats) and Wakocha (Japanese Black tea) are also some of the varieties that the Japanese tea culture offers.
