This is a single-origin tea “Gokoh”. Originally developed for use in gyokuro and matcha, it has a sweet taste with little astringency or bitterness. Mr Nakajima, who produced this tea, is one of the leading tea producers in Sayama and was awarded the title of Eternal Tea Saint in 2020.
No additives such as sugar, flavors, or seasonings are used.
The astringency and bitterness of Japanese tea comes from a component called catechin.
Catechins are a type of polyphenol with strong antioxidant and antibacterial properties.
The power of catechins for a healthy life!
