My family like Japanese tea a lot.
They drink a lot of it, from the morning to before sleeping.
When I was a child, a dentist found out the tea incrustation on my tooth.
I don’t know the green tea avoids teeth damage or not, but I have never had bad tooth in my child time.
I wanted drink coke or sweet juice at that time and complained a lot.
However, my parents never gave me coke.
Now, I feel really thanks to my parents as I still don’t have bad tooth.
I would like to talk about Japanese green tea today.
