Get to know Japanese tea by starting with the four types


If you want to know what Japanese tea is like, try the four types that I recommend here. There are 13 types of Japanese tea. Some of you might wonder which one is good or what you should have first. Here is the answer for you ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆


1. Sencha (The most common green tea) or Fukamushi-sencha (Deep-steamed sencha)
These are the basic of Japanese tea. You can’t talk about Japanese tea without knowing sencha. They are the most popular and common green tea in Japan. These teas have great harmony of bitterness and umami, which is the best charm of Japanese tea. You can enjoy sencha any time, and sencha can be your main tea among these four.

2. Matcha (Powdered tea)

This is the tea used in tea ceremonies or sado (The Way of Tea). It is enjoyed less frequently than sencha, but sado has a big aspect in Japanese tea culture. A lot of other Japanese culture have been influenced by sado, as well. Now matcha flavored foods and beverages are popular, such as matcha latte and matcha cake. Matcha is very thick and rich in flavor. I strongly recommend the fine-quality one. Low quality one has strong bitterness, and the fine ones don’t. You can enjoy it at your home party or for any special occasions.




3. Hojicha (Roasted green tea) or Genmaicha (Brown rice tea)

These are the tea for people. They are reasonable and enjoyed casually. It is usually prepared with plenty of water. The taste is not that strong so they can be enjoyed with meals and snacks. If you have one in your tea selections, it will be the most useful tea.

4. Kabusecha (Covered tea) or Gyokuro (Premium green tea)

These teas have rich umami, which is the distinctive flavor found in Japanese tea. They are good when you want to enjoy something different. You will appreciate them at premium tea time or when you want to relish fine tea at your personal time. I recommend preparing these teas in small servings, so that the taste of these teas will be concentrated.

  1. It's informative, thank you!
    But, what is tencha?

  2. Konnichiwa, Tsukimi-san,

    Tencha is the ingredient of Matcha. Matcha is made by milling tencha. So, you don’t usually find tencha sold at tea shops. They are usually sold in matcha form.
