We serve Japanese tea (Green tea) and Oolong tea (a kind of Chinese tea) by ice or hot depends on the customers' requests . Japanese tea leaves are imported from Japanese tea manufacturer in order to have fresh one. Japanese tea leaves are steamed to prevent from being fermented and it keeps colour green. Japanese tea includes Vitamins like C, B2 and E. There are another minerals,too. It is said that Japanese tea is good for health and beauty. Though it is sold in the plastic bottles at the supermarket, Japanese sometimes are surprised at the taste which contains sugar. Usually we do not add sugar into Japanese tea and drink it instead of water so that we drink green tea when we have meals and sweets and when we feel thirsty. There is Matcha green tea which is often uses for traditional tea ceremonies. Of course, not only for the ceremony but you can drink it anytime whenever you like. Matcha is thick green tea and we do not add sugar and you may feel a bit bitter. It is famous for Green tea ice cream in the world and it is used for Tempura with salt, too. Oolong tea is also very popular in Japan. In my opinion, Oolong tea is easy to drink without sugar and it contains very similar minerals as Green tea and then it is popular among Japanese. We hope you enjoy Japanese or Oolong tea at Cafe Japan.
