The dramatic encounter with Tochu Green begun with one simple conversation I had with a colleague of mine. “There is something about this Tochu that effects us some how…”.
The reason I was attracted to Tochu Green, is hard to explain in words. But if I had to , I would say, I felt that I needed Tochu Green because my body told me so.
Tochu Green is not any old regular Eucomia Tea or any tea that you can find in markets around the world. Although it is from Tochu Tea Leaf, since it is not roasted like most teas, the taste is very mild and the color and the flavor is close to Maccha (green tea powder). Tochu is originally from China, so even in Japan, most of the Tochu Teas that are sold are from China. But the Tochu Green leave powder that I tasted was purely made in Japan. Since it is made in a similar way as Maccha (Green Tea powder), you can only find this type of
Tochu powder in Japan. Even in Japan you rarely find Tochu powder, because it is extremely difficult to process into powder for the rubber like substance called Gutta-percha included in Tochu. Not like other regular teas which you drink by boiling or brewing the leaves, you can drink the whole leave by stirring the powder into water. And since it has no additives and the powder is purely made from Tochu, you can take in everything Tochu can offer from drinking Tochu Green.
I’m always looking for new products which I can offer to those who I love. Some products go, and some products stay. Tochu Green is a “Keeper””!! I know it, and my family knows it and my friends know it. I’m sure you would agree with me if you try.
I hope your body tells you the need of Tochu, just like I did…
