A Taster's Guide To Green Tea

I worked for Japanese companies for six years prior to coming back to school and have been to Japan on several occasions. Chief among things I got hooked on were sushi and green tea:
...there are a multitude of specialty green teas, each varying in taste, texture and complexity.

While a true vinophile would never consistently drink glass upon glass of red wine, green tea connoisseurs take great pride in sampling the full spectrum of brews.

But how do you tell the difference between sencha and matcha? Aren't all green teas simply dried leaves seeped in hot water?

Ah, my young grasshopper!

You have much to learn, but fear not as today, I'm going to present you with a handy taster's guide to green teas that will hopefully get started on the long road to green tea devotion.
