Have you ever been to a Japanese tea ceremony?

In Japan, the custom of drinking tea (green tea) is rooted in daily life – after a meal, to quench your thirst, to warm you up, and for refreshment. At home, it is common to use a teapot and tea leaves in order to make the tea. You can also see many people on the city streets drinking tea from plastic bottles, like the famous “PET Bottle.” Beverage manufacturers sell many types of bottled beverages in vending machines and convenience stores – cold ones in summer, and warm ones in winter. In Japan, tea is not something that only certain people drink. It is an essential part of life which everyone enjoys in their own way, regardless of age or gender.
