If you’re like me and had no clue that most of the world’s tea, including Japanese green tea, comes from the same plant, then come along for a tea learning journey!
Special thanks to d:matcha for giving me a behind-the-scenes look at how it all happens in the lovely town of Wazuka. You can learn more about tea on their website https://www.dmatcha.com/. By the way, this is not a sponsored video, but I highly recommend visiting if you’re in the Kyoto area.
