Green Tea Obsession

I fulfilled a life-long ambition recently and went to Japan. There are so many things that I adore about Japan. The culture, the Kitsch, the food and of course my two favourite beverages Sake and green tea
To really exercise my Green tea obsession I took myself to Uji in Kyoto, a green tea producing region. A green tea mecca where I ate , drank, licked and inhaled every form of green tea substance known to man. I just can’t wait to do it all over again…..
