Ochazuke with Matcha


"Ochazuke" is a very popular, traditional Japanese dish made by pouring hot green tea over rice with savory toppings.  It is a very light dish and people often eat it when he does not feel well or the stomach is in a bad condition.  Both Japanese green tea and Umeboshi (Japanese plum) are widely used for curing the stomach problems. Sometimes dashi (fish stock) is used instead of green tea. Nowadays most people use ready-made ochazuke packets, from companies like Nagatanien, but if you make Ochazuke by yourself, using green tea made from tea leaves, you will be able to enjoy more the health benefits of the Japanese green tea and it will be much healthier.
