Tea From Japan

Austin's host family sent gifts of Japanese tea to me.
I can't read Japanese, but I can determine from
the pictorial directions on the back
the first package is loose leaf and...

the second package is
tea bags.  
Austin said he drank green tea every day with meals
at his host's home.  
But, he doesn't think he drank teabag tea.
His host mother made tea in a teapot for the family.  

Look at the tag on this tea bag with a
cutout so it will hang on the teacup without falling in. 
Brilliant idea, in my opinion!  
Austin said there was a little residue left in the bottom
of his teacup everyday, similar to the photo.
Could it possibly be Matcha in a teabag? 
Austin and I will continue to do a little more taste-testing
during the next few days.
