Question
May I ask if Japanese green tea is the most healthy among all kinds of tea?

I like japanese green tea, especially the matcha. So I am curious if it is the best in the world, according to scientists.

Answer
Thank you for your question.

Japanese green tea is very healthy and is said to be a very strong anti-toxin.  
I don't know what scientists say, but I read a while back that people living in
Shizuoka where the manufacturing of green tea is famous have a low risk of getting
cancer.

It is also said that the small affects of radiation can be taken away by drinking
green tea.  

There are many kinds of tea that have special characteristics.  It is hard to
say that there is one absolute best.
