TRIVIA

Which country drinks the most tea in the world?

Japanese Tea coming to Sakuraco

Matcha

Matcha is a powdered green tea renowned for its rich flavor, vivid color, and numerous health benefits. Its significance lies in its integral role in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies and its widespread popularity as a versatile ingredient in modern culinary creations.

Matcha

Sencha

Sencha is a beloved Japanese green tea that is cherished for its refreshing taste. Nagatani Soen, an Uji tea grower, devised the method of steaming the leaves and then hand-rolling them during drying. This remains the standard for crafting sencha today, yielding a tea with a delightful aroma and vibrant color.

Hojicha

Hojicha is roasted Japanese green tea. While other Japanese tea leaves are steamed for preparation, hojicha is roasted at 150°C (302°F) to produce its signature golden color and rich flavor. Renowned for its warm notes, it’s a popular choice for tea enthusiasts seeking a milder and more soothing tea experience.

Hojicha

Genmaicha

Genmaicha, a traditional Japanese blend, originated in the Edo Period (1603-1868), when tea merchants began to add roasted brown rice green tea leaves in order to extend their supply. Roasted to a light brown, the rice infuses the tea with a distinctive nutty flavor. Today, genmaicha is cherished and celebrated worldwide for its unique taste and health benefits.

Sakura Tea

Also known as sakurayu or sakuracha, this herbal tea is created by steeping dried, pickled cherry blossoms in boiling water. Once immersed in water, the dried petals beautifully unfurl, recreating the beauty of Japan's iconic cherry blossoms inside one’s own tea cup. This traditional tea offers a subtle floral aroma and a mild, refreshing taste that is slightly salty.

Herbal Teas

Japanese tea culture is vast with a diverse array of teas that are rich in flavor, typically sourced from locally renowned ingredients. Aside from the cherished, antioxidant rich green teas, herbal teas offer delicious, caffeine-free alternatives.
