Why does green tea taste different in restaurants?

When I order green tea in an Asian/Oriental restaurant the tea tastes nothing like what I make at home. Do they use matcha or something else or am I not doing it right?

  • It may be the way that they steep the tea. Don't use bagged tea. Don't let the water come to a boil. Steep for five minutes before straining.
