1) Matcha Tea- Matcha tea is amazing and you can get matcha iced tea too. Green tea in Japan is made with matcha and it is quite literally the best thing on this planet. The flavour gets too strong when you leave the matcha teabag in the tea cup for long and it could also get bitter. You should leave it inside for just around 30 seconds. There are various places to get Matcha tea in Japan which include Japan station and other local tea houses. The starbucks in Japan also has matcha tea which is made with authentic matcha. There are also matcha infuse iced tea and lemonades available. I tried these at Shinjuku in the city.
