Japanese Green Tea Nishio Sencha: The Most Popular Green Tea in Japan


I took a trip down last week to the Pavilion Shopping Complex in Kuala Lumpur. Strolling down to Tokyo Street, I stopped by the Nishio Japaneses Green Tea booth. After publicly showing my curiosity over the various teacups, teapots and tea, a young girl gave me a few cups of tea to taste.

It was delicious! It had a rather grassy smell and a splendid calming effect. The tea I drank was Nishio Sencha.
