Japanese people, young and old, love their tea. This is
evidenced by the sheer variety of tea for sale in stores. Tea is
also always included in vending machines that sell drinks. Apart
from being a national beverage, tea is used in food such as cakes,
ice-cream and even noodles.
In summer besides homemade lemonade, I often make jugs of jasmine
tea and keep it in the fridge. Nothing cools you down like a tall
glass of ice
cold jasmine tea in the summer heat, not even a fizzy soda.
