Preparation & Storage of Japanese Tea

The preparation of Japanese tea differs depending on the type of tea in infusion time, water temperature and amount of tea and water. It is therefore not possible to make a general statement about the preparation of Japanese tea. You will find instructions on how to prepare each type of tea in the product description of our Japanese teas. In general, however, the following can be said about the preparation of Japanese tea: The Japanese green tea is first put into a teapot (the typical Japanese teapot is called Kyusu). Then water is heated in a kettle or kettle and poured into the tea cups. The water now cools down to the desired temperature. Then pour the water into the teapot filled with tea. Now be sure to keep to the infusion time specified for the respective type of tea, as letting it steep too long will quickly make the tea bitter. Brewing for too short a time, on the other hand, can prevent the Japanese tea from unfolding its full health-promoting effect.

Storage of Japanese tea is an essential ingredient for its success. Protect the unopened package from heat and sunlight. After opening, you should also protect the tea from moisture, strong smells (e.g. often found in the refrigerator), but also from rapidly changing temperatures. It is also advisable to use up the tea quickly after opening. However, don't be afraid to buy Japanese tea: if it is stored at room temperature and protected from sunlight, the most important requirements for the correct storage of Japanese tea are already fulfilled.

In Japan, function and simple beauty go hand in hand. This also applies to the tea rooms. Harmony and order reign in them. The constant uniformity of the rows with the elegant surfaces of the tea leaves makes them look like well-maintained ornamental gardens. Japan is the country of the biggest tea. About 90,000 tonnes are produced here every year. Only about 2,000 tons are exported, because otherwise the domestic demand could not be met. The largest tea-growing area in Japan is in the province of Shizuoka. Other tea gardens can be found on the island of Kyushu and in the area around Mount Fuji. The tea is only harvested from May to September. The best quality tea is harvested from May to mid-June. In winter, the gardens are protected against frost with warm air fans. Sencha is the most common type of tea in Japan. It is available in many qualities. It tastes aromatic with a hint of sweetness and a slight bitterness of fresh green. Please note our particularly good qualities, which come exclusively from controlled organic cultivation;
