Tea is the most beloved beverage in Japan. And for good reason. Some of the world's most delicious tea is grown in Japan. Shizuoka, Kagoshima and Uji in Kyoto (famous for Uji Matcha) are known tea hotspots.
Often Japanese tea is made using all natural ingredients, with ingredients being preserved in salt, roasted or pickled. Thus making salty, rich and slightly sour tea common in Japan.
From elegant matcha used in traditional tea ceremonies, to sweet, roasted hojicha tea enjoyed on cold days, Japan is truly a tea drinker's wonderland.
