Ryokucha is Japanese Green Tea

Green tea is 緑茶 (ryoku-cha) in the Japanese language, but in Japan it is commonly referred to simply as お茶  (o-cha). It is sometimes referred to 日本茶 (nihon-cha), meaning Japanese tea, although it wasn’t introduced from China until the Song Dynasty, between 960 and 1279 AD.

The Japanese Buddhist priest Myōan Eisai is credited with introducing green tea to Japan from China.

Common varieties of green tea in Japan:

番茶 Bancha (common tea)

玉露 Gyokuro (jade dew)

焙じ茶 Hōji-cha (roasted tea)

冠茶 Kabuse-cha (covered tea)

窯煎茶 Kamairi-cha tea (pan-fried tea)

茎茶 Kuki-cha (stalk tea)

抹茶 Matcha (rubbed tea)

芽茶 Mecha (buds and tips tea)

煎茶 Sencha (broiled tea)

The best Japanese green tea is  from the Yame region of Fukuoka Prefecture and the Uji region of Kyoto.

Shizuoka Prefecture produces 40% of  the raw tea leaves in Japan.

Pokka Jasmine Green Tea

This tasted nasty to me!

Granted, I can’t stand jasmine perfume even, whereas other women are enamored by the fragrance. But looking at the ingredients list, there’s no actual jasmine in it. The sickly sweetness is from sugar and the ubiquitous “flavoring.”

NET: 10.1 FLUID OUNCES (300 ml). Recyclable Can.

One side of the can is in Chinese, the other in English. There’s also information in Thai and Bahasa Malaysia.

KOMPOSISI: Air, Teh Hijau, Seduh Asli, Gula, Pencita Rasa.
