Green Tea

Green Tea
Green tea is more commonly known simply as "Japanese tea. Types of tea are commonly graded based on the quality and the parts of the tea plants used as well as their time of harvest and the way they are processed. After fresh green tea leaves have been collected they are steam-heated to stop the leaves breathing oxygen. Then they are pressed or rolled to make the leaves fine and before they are heated again until dried. This process helps Japanese green tea to develop its special and sensational flavor.

Although there are many types of green tea, Genmaicha is one of the most popular Japanese teas, a admixture of:

Sencha, the most common green tea in Japan. This type of green tea represents the first month's harvest of sencha, producing a leaf of high consistency, rich emerald color and strong taste
Matcha, the best green tea in Japan, made from tea bushes. This kind of green tea is always used for the Japanese tea ceremony
Roasted Rice, made from roasted Japanese brown rice to enhance the teas taste and smell

Japanese people believe that raw fish is an elixir of life because it contains protein and omega-3 fatty acid. The latter is said to have a positive effect on many chronic disorders. Furthermore, the low level of cholesterol in some types of fish is beneficial to peoples health. The processing of raw fish does not allow any congestion. Immediately when fish is caught and cleaned, it will be deep-frozen already at sea at a temperature of -35?C, killing parasites and bacteria and keeping the fish fresh all the times.

Keep raw fish in the freezer all the time and do not keep it longer than 2 weeks
Freeze raw fish at -20?C (-4?F) or lower temperature for at least 24 hours before it is prepared to ensure that parasites have been killed
Sushi and sashimi should be consumed within 2 hours after cooking for best taste and nutrition because healthy fish oil will be lost afterwards. Avoid instant sushi or sashimi because you cannot know how and when it has been produced
You need to ferment the fish before cooking and do not wash the fish and do not unfreeze it too early because it may diminish nutritional benefits and may negatively affect its taste
Cut raw fish when it is still slightly frozen for nice and easy slicing, and beautiful presentation
