    Green Tea

    The astringent constituent in Japanese tea is a type of polyphenol called catechin. Japan has done a great deal with the humble tea leaf. For example some benefits of the catechin in the tea leaf can lower cholesterol in some cases. Roasted over charcoal at a high temperature and grown under shade for at least 20 days are one of the examples. The most popular Japanese tea might be ryokucha. Depending on the timing of picking the leaves, the grade, the price can be noticeably different.

Our Mochi baking class was much more than just baking Mochi. Yuko told us about the tradition behind Mochis and answered all our questions. It was wonderful to be in her home and learn all the important secrets we were looking for to prepare various Mochis back home.
