Japanese green tea
Originally used as a medicinal treatment, tea is now the most popular drink in the world. Rooted in tradition, it is made and prepared according to rituals specific to each culture.
Among the different varieties of tea, green tea is the one that undergoes the least transformation and, even today, its production remains largely artisanal. Originally from India and then cultivated in China, the best green teas are now made in Japan and have become an essential part of the Japanese soul.
Their effectiveness in the prevention of diseases, especially cancers, is no longer to be proven. Beneficial for the immune system and rich in polyphenols, anti-cancer molecules, green tea can be considered as a real medicine.
Beyond its benefits for the body, Japanese green tea also takes care of the mind since it is traditionally drunk in the greatest calm and invites to abstain from the outside world.
