what is the name of the green tea they serve at japanes sushi places?

I know its green tea because I ask them, but it has a distinct flavor that is much different than the green teas that I have at home. I’ve been to a couple different places and the tea is the same, any suggestions?

    Green tea (緑茶, ryokucha?) is so ubiquitous in Japan that it is more commonly known as “tea” (ocha (お茶, ocha?)) and even “Japanese tea” (nihoncha (日本茶, nihoncha?)),although it was invented in China during the Song Dynasty, and brought to Japan by Myōan Eisai, a Japanese Buddhist priest who also introduced the Rinzai school of Zen Buddhism.

    Types of tea are commonly graded depending on the quality and the parts of the plant used as well as how they are processed. There are large variations in both price and quality within these broad categories, and there are many specialty green teas that fall outside this spectrum. The best Japanese green tea is said to be that from the Yame region of Fukuoka Prefecture and the Uji region of Kyoto. Shizuoka Prefecture(静岡県) crops 40% of raw tea leaf.

    Go to a Japanese food market and look for green tea. The most common brand you will see is Yama Moto Yama. If they do not carry that then ask one of the clerks to help you. READ THE LABEL. I CANNOT SAY THAT ENOUGH BUT READ THE LABEL. BE SURE IT READS PRODUCT OF JAPAN. You DO NOT want green tea coming from China. No body knows how much ‘other’ substances they use when producing items such as green tea. Be Careful.
