Another article from the Speciality Tea Institute. Most people know that green tea has health benefits. I have been telling people for a bit about Japanese green tea and it’s health benefits. Most people do not realize that how many different green teas are in Japan and are just starting to realize it’s health benefits. Other green teas are healthy too and have different characteristics. This post mentions The Book of Tea, Okakura Kakuzo saying “Tea began as medicine and grew into a beverage”. It also focuses on Japanese green teas. If you have a high quality Japanese green tea that is brewed properly it is very tasty and very healthy for you too.
