Ocha is one of the most common beverages in the Silver Stars. It is also the central element of the tea ceremony (which uses Matcha, a bitter green tea). Ocha is served in cups without a handle and is never drunk with sugar or cream. The most polite way of drinking green tea is to hold the cup with one hand and support it from below with the other hand.

Gyokuro (Jade Dew) is The highest grade green tea cultivated in special way. Gyokuro's name refers to the pale green color of the infusion. The leaves are grown in the shade before harvest, which alters their flavor.
