Podcast 020: Cha Doraku

my japanese green tea podcastHave you ever seen a Japanese green tea with an extra step of oxidation?

Neither had I until I heard about bihakkou  (微発酵, slight withering), also called ichou (萎凋) green teas.

Our guest for this show is Shiho Kanamaru of Cha Doraku, an online tea store in Canada that ships worldwide.

She sources very special teas, and we’ll talk about some of them in this episode.

I find that the more I learn about Japanese tea, the more I realize how little I know!

Check out Cha Doraku for these rare Japanese teas.

    Hola Ricardo san,

    Neither had I until I heard about bihakkou (微発酵, slight withering), also called ichou (萎凋) green teas.

    Yes, it’s a new challenge for Japanese green tea producers. Ichou has been developed specially considering European and North American market.

    Bihakkou is also interested for me too. In fact in my item range you can find it.

      Hello Hide san

      That’s very interesting, I wonder if this type of tea will become more popular from now on.
