japanese tea

Before I start describing the different kinds of Japanese tea, I would like to make a remark of principle importance for every tea-lover. Japanese teas are rather undemanding. They easily survive hard and over-boiled water, they can be drunk from any ware and brewed in any ware, the proportion of tea leaves and water can be any — depending on how strong you like it. Japanese teas combine with different snacks — starting from traditional Japanese sweets and ending with ordinary cookies and sandwiches. In short, one can experiment with these teas any way one likes. There is only one rule to be obeyed very strictly.
