Japanese Green Tea | Best Matcha from Kyoto, Japan

One property of bitter and astringent substances in Japanese Green Tea like caffeine and catechin is that they dissolve easier the hotter the water.

Tea becomes bitter and astringent when catechin is dissolved to large extent.

For those who dislike bitter and astringent tea, Japanese Green Tea can be steeped in water with a lower temperature to make it tastier.

Japanese Green Tea has many kinds of it. Matcha is of course Japanese Green Tea. So water temperature is very important to make tasty Matcha tea!

Best Matcha Green Tea | Grace & Green

Have you ever felt that Japanese Green Tea is bitter or astringent and therefore hard to appreciate? Japanese Green Tea contains catechins, a group of polyphenols that give tea a bitter and astringent taste.

There is also caffeine, which is a bitter substance and all these cause the tea to appear bitter and astringent.

Although catechin has these properties, it is also noted for its preventive effects on lifestyle related diseases and for numerous other health benefits.
