Bottled tea is common in Japan. It appeared 1990s and spread across the country quickly.
We often buy it instead of water or fizzy drink when going out. It’s convenient during sightseeing because it is sold everywhere- convenience stores, vending machines, kiosks and so on.
I think that you can easily enjoy sightseeing with Japanese traditional flavor.
Recently, many kinds of bottled tea are sold.
You may wonder which one to buy. So I introduce the kind of tea.
