The top 3 reasons our customers drink Japanese teas!



Matcha, Gyokuro and Sencha are three good quality Japanese green teas that have "Umami". Umami is the fifth human taste sense rounding out sweet, sour, salt and bitter. Umami refers to savoriness and is considered the most influential factor in determining how delicious a food is. Consequently Japanese teas are delicious!


Health Benefits

Green tea like Matcha is sometime called a "Super Food". A key health benefit of tea is its power as an antioxidant. Green tea is a great source of antioxidants because it contains substances such as vitamin A, C and E and the powerful catechin antioxidant. It's no wonder that Japanese green tea, with so many antioxidants, is considered a health food.



matchaThere is a reason why you are relaxed when you drink green tea and it is more than just a state of mind. Green teas, especially high quality Japanese green tea such as Gyokuro, Matcha, Kukicha and some Senchas contain a special compound called "L-Theanine". This compound induces relaxation and is a unique amino acid found in tea and very few other sources. It generates alpha-waves in the brain. Alpha waves are emitted when the brain is in a relaxed state.

We also know people who report being relaxed just by the aroma of tea. One of the components of the aroma in green tea is Aoba alcohol (xylopyranosyl-(1-6) glucopyranoside). Aoba means green leaves and we suspect it eases stress and stimulates the circulation of blood. By breathing in the aroma of tea, the olfactory receptors transport it to the brain very quickly and this could result in a sense of relaxation.
