Japanese Green Tea has a lot of health benefits, but did you know the water temperature can change a lot of those – and significantly alter the taste?
This time, I travel to Fuji City in Shizuoka to visit 2 green tea masters called “cha-shi” who will tell us how to make the perfect cup and how to control the taste with temperature, explain the benefits – and how to get the most out of each drop!
