who's that cultivar? || talking with ricardo of my japanese green tea

A Tea Blog that Cultivates its own Variety.

Tea isn't just a leaf. Like the grapes for wine or the apples in your pie, there is a lot more than meets the eye. Looking at many teas upon order, you may notice the listing of a specific cultivar. Cultivars are the result of human interaction in the breeding of plants. Isolating the strengths and desired genes, we can create a more weather resistant or better-tasting tea.

So join me today as we team up with Ricardo from My Japanese Green Tea to hear all about the magic within the tea leaves. He's done some amazing work in documenting tea cultivars used within Japan, their history, taste, and uses. This is certainly a tea blog that any dedicated tea drinker will want to hear.
