Japan is a green tea country. However, its consumption has decreased while that of black and oolong teas has been increasing. The change of eating habits could be one of the reasons.
Speaking of Japanese food, you
may think of sushi, sashimi and vegetables stuff, which are considered healthy
food that brings out the taste of the ingredients. But that’s not always the
case at table in Japan now. Rather than those, our diet including home-cooked
meals are more westernized. More meaty, oily, cheesy and oily….In that case,
the fermented tea such as black and oolong teas go better with since
the teas clean richness in one’s mouth. Of course, green tea is a must, but we
have more and we will.
