On a recent cold and rainy day, I found myself hungry for lunch, so I ducked into a ramen shop on Queen St. West, near Spadina, in downtown Toronto. I love Japanese food and had been wanting to get a taste of the latest craze–ramen shops. I wasn’t disappointed with the bowl of steaming noodles (ramen) with sliced chicken and bean sprouts in a miso broth, but what truly warmed me up was a gorgeous mug of Japanese green tea. There is something so beautifully delicate about the lovely colour and taste of Japanese tea–which happens to have the benefit of being a super source of polyphenols (associated with prevention of heart disease and cancers)–that I had to share this moment.
