Warnings upon drinking Japanese Tea.
Do not preserve overnight
The theanine contained in Japanese tea oxidizes as time goes by. Tea leaves left in the tea pot hold proteins, sugars and lipids which causes mold and germ growth. Only make Japanese tea when you will drink it right away.
Drink Light Teas on an Empty Stomach
Japanese tea may have hunger controlling effects and thus can be drunk before eating when dieting. However, strong tea may upset your stomach. We recommend teas like bancha and hojicha for empty stomachs.
Do not take medicine with tea
The theanine and caffeine contained in Japanese tea chemically interacts with medical substances resulting in over-amplification or reduction of medicinal properties. Please drink medicine with water.
Avoid drinking at night
Caffeine excites the brain. This function continues for hours so you might not be able to sleep at night if you drink before sleeping.
