Origin: Japan

Tea was first introduced to Japan around the turn of the first millennium, and since then it's become much more than just a drink: chado or "the way of tea" is a fine art for the Japanese that takes a lifetime to master. Today Japan is famous for its lush, verdant green tea, thanks to a process of steaming the leaves.

Green Tea

Green tea's fresh, verdant taste is down to its processing: the leaves are heated shortly after picking, stopping the oxidation process that would eventually turn them into black tea. Some of the best green teas are found in Japan and China, where the techniques of firing or steaming the leaves have been perfected over many centuries. Find out more about green tea here.
