The illustrious origins of green tea can be traced back to two main countries: China and Japan. The range of teas from these two countries differ widely in appearance and aroma, but they share a tradition of producing from the first harvests (Xin Cha in China and Shincha in Japan). Just as winter draws to a close, the sweet flavor and herbal freshness of these teas fascinates connoisseurs. Although green tea is often associated with well-being, it is also delicious drunk for pleasure. With its innumerable terroirs and prestigious labels of quality, it has more than earned its place in the world of gastronomy.
