Espresso, but Tea!

What is espresso?

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the definition of espresso is this: a type of strong black coffee made by forcing steam through ground coffee beans.

I got it! However, it doesn’t seem to be fit for Japanese beverage industry. Recently, something “espresso” is the fad. Of course, we have real coffee type of “espresso”. Nowadays, espresso for tea have appeared on the market.

For example, “Espresso Tea”, “Espresso Tea Latte”, “Espresso Tea with lemon” (black tea type)  and “Green ESPRESSO (green tea type)”….. . 


Surprisingly, another new type of tea product will be on the market soon. Its name is “Teagurt”. It seems to be a yogurt-tasting peach-flavored tea. Hmm….this is more interesting.
