Japanese tea is great taste and good for health
Japanese tea is known for its unique taste and aroma. There are different types of Japanese tea, such as green tea, black tea, and roasted tea, but green tea is the most popular type of Japanese tea. Japanese green tea has a refreshing and grassy taste with a slight bitterness that is balanced by its sweetness. Some people describe the taste as "umami," which is a Japanese term for a savory taste.

Now, let's talk about the health benefits of Japanese tea. Japanese tea is not only delicious, but it is also good for your health. Here are some reasons why:

  1. High in antioxidants: Japanese tea is rich in antioxidants, which help to protect your body from damage caused by free radicals. This can reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
  2. Boosts metabolism: Drinking Japanese tea can help to boost your metabolism, which can aid in weight loss and weight management.
  3. Improves brain function: Japanese tea contains caffeine and L-theanine, which can improve brain function and cognitive performance.
  4. Supports immune system: Japanese tea contains catechins, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting effects.
  5. Promotes relaxation: Japanese tea can help to promote relaxation and reduce stress levels, thanks to its L-theanine content.

Additional details about the taste and health benefits of Japanese tea that might interest you:


Umami flavor: Japanese green tea is known for its unique umami flavor, which is a savory taste that is often described as brothy or meaty. This flavor comes from the amino acid L-theanine, which is present in high levels in Japanese green tea.

Astringency: Japanese green tea also has a slightly astringent taste, which can be described as a dry or puckering sensation in the mouth. This astringency is 
caused by the tannins present in the tea, which are also responsible for its dark color.

Sweetness: Despite its slightly bitter and astringent taste, Japanese green tea also has a natural sweetness that balances out these flavors. This sweetness comes from the natural sugars and amino acids present in the tea.

Health Benefits:

Weight loss: Japanese green tea contains catechins, which have been shown to help boost metabolism and aid in weight loss. Studies have found that consuming green tea can help to reduce body weight, body fat, and waist circumference.

Heart health: Japanese green tea has been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, thanks to its high levels of antioxidants and polyphenols. These compounds help to reduce inflammation and lower blood pressure, which can protect the heart and blood vessels.

Brain function: The combination of caffeine and L-theanine in Japanese green tea has been shown to improve brain function, including memory, focus, and mood. This is because caffeine helps to stimulate the brain, while L-theanine promotes relaxation and reduces anxiety.

Immune system: The catechins and other antioxidants in Japanese green tea have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting effects. This can help to protect the body from illness and disease.

Oral health: Drinking Japanese green tea can help to promote oral health by reducing bacteria in the mouth and preventing the formation of plaque and cavities. This is because the catechins in green tea have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.


Overall, Japanese tea is not only a delicious beverage, but it also offers a wide range of health benefits. So the next time you have a chance to try some Japanese tea, be sure to savor its unique flavor and appreciate the ways it can benefit your health!

Smooth like silk on the palate. The scent of the roasted rice and matcha intemingling like the finest fragrance.

Excellent sencha. I did not taste any bitterness at all.

My favourite

The taste is balanced And not too bitter

Thank you so much for sharing your taste review. :)

Balanced of sweetness and bitterness

This one is the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness for me. I am not fan of bitterness of tea but this combination of sweetness and little bitt of bitterness makes me feel energetic. I smell and taste the freshness with every sip in the morning. it contains 20 grams I feel the quantity is not too much. So now I wanna try their other matcha to compare.

Hello, Amber.
Thanks for leaving a thoughtful review about our matcha.

My Favorite Matcha

I have used this Koiai matcha for 3 years now since my Japanese friend recommend. I love it! It is the best I have tasted. It's fresh and nutty as well. I used to drink coffee every morning but now I make my own Matcha lattes at home. It is very dense because it is high quality ceremonial matcha so make sure you sift matcha for creamy and foaming.

Thank you for loving KOIAI Matcha. We will share this great review with our farmers. Thank you again.

Lacking customer service

I reached out twice to Osada Tea regarding my tea order, once before I bought the tea and once after regarding the discount that I did not apply and the first time a question about radiation. I never heard from anybody on either of my questions. Also the tea that I ordered tastes really bad and I don’t know why but I just can’t drink it so I was a bit of a waste of money for me and I will not be re-ordering
