More on Gyokuro Tea

He succeeded in his endeavours, with Gyokuro Tea now popular around the world.

Benefits of Japanese Gyokuro Asahi Green Tea

Studies suggest that habitual Tea drinking (at least three times a week, no matter the type) supports a longer, healthier life. This is according to a study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, which saw 100,902 participants split into two groups.

The first group was comprised of volunteers who drank three or more cups of Tea a week. The second group, meanwhile, included those who drank less than three brews a week.

Additionally, scientists noted that these same brew lovers could live up to 1.26 years longer than someone who never or seldom drank Tea.

  2. I have tasted a lot of Japanese green tea and this very much hits the mark. I managed to brew this just right but I imagine it could be over brewed if not careful. Second infusion tasted quite good also but the first was better.
