One of the thing I’ve learnt from the Japanese and trying to follow diligently is to adopt a tea drinking habit.
Knowing that the teas are full of antioxidants and could keep our cells energized and healthy, I tell myself must drink it regularly!
Marumo The One Japan Tea from Shizuoka has many varieties. Shizuoka accounts for almost half of Japan’s overall tea production, and this prefecture has premium tea plantations because of its water quality and climate for production. In addition, Shizuoka’s tea can comes in a number of varieties, giving them very significant versatility.
IPPIN has imported not 1 but 8 varieties from Marumo and they are ranged differently by how the tea leaves are harvested, processed and serving suggestion.
The varieties include: • Sencha (common green tea) • Genmaicha (roasted rice + Sencha) • Houjicha (toasted green tea) • Umegashima (exclusive green tea coming from a tea garden instead of mountain) • Fukamushicha (similar to Sencha but steamed for longer period) • Gyokuro (highest class of green tea among all because of special treatment before harvesting) • Boucha (made from stems of green tea plant) • Konacha (powder that comes from production of Sencha)
Pick something that you fancy and start your tea drinking habit now. You can find these teas (ranging from $8 to $66) at Metro’s Paragon (level 2) & Metro Centrepoint (level 4) IPPIN section along with many others food selections from Japan.
