Made from leaves that have not been oxidized.
I have a question about the genmai cha tea. I was reading that for some of the lighter green teas you should add about 2 teaspoons per cup of water instead of one teaspoon for per cup. Is the genmai cha considered a "lighter" green tea?
"lighter" in that context means non-dense, not lightly colored. airy teas should use the double measurement. Its usually pretty intuitive on which teas are non-dense. in the case of genmai cha, one teaspoon per cup of water is fine.
There are four advantages to green tea... Its beauty, its taste, its aroma, and its health benefits. Learn to enjoy the first three and you'll forget you drank it for the fourth. ^^
