Japanese Kyushu tea (green tea, “ryoku-cha”)
You must speak about Japanese green tea when you talk about Japanese cuisine. The Kyushu region, located in the southern part of Japan, extends from territories where it can snow to subtropical areas, and varieties of teas suitable for these territories have been produced there since ancient times. Moreover, the first Japanese tea exported to Europe came from Kyushu. Even the same tea has a characteristic taste and aroma depending on the production area and the producer, and you can enjoy a feeling of “terroir” that you might have for wine.
