Why “Eat”?

To eat tea leaves is called “Syokucha” in Japan. The reason to Shokucha spread is people wanted to intake all of the nutrition of green tea leaves. Tea leaves contain water-soluble and fat-soluble nutrition and fat- soluble one normally leaves in the tea grounds. Therefore, people thought if they eat leaves, they will intake all of the nutrition and they started to Shokucha. The water-soluble and fat-soluble ingredient of the green tea are as follows.

Water-soluble catechin, vitamin C, caffeine, amino acid, sugar
Fat-soluble vitamin E, beta-carotene, dietary fiber, minerals, chlorophyll, part of catechin

The easiest way to Shokucha. Just sprinkle some coarsely grounded tea on foods. The rich aroma of tea is an accent of the meals.

②Put in Sweets

When you make cookies or cakes, very good to put in the dough. You can enjoy coloring green too.


In Japan, we have Tea-soba noodle, which is added green tea. Please try one when you visit Japan!

Try Shokucha

if you have some green tea leaves at home, try Shokucha, not only for drinking!
