Iced Green Tea and Hot Green Tea

Ceramic cup with hot green tea on right, glass of iced green tea on left, paler yellow in colorView Full Resolution

This photo, taken in Japan, shows a ceramic cup with hot green tea in it. The intense green color of the tea, together with the slight foaminess, suggests a Japanese green tea, perhaps one with some matcha mixed in (but probably not strictly matcha because it does not look opaque enough).

On the left, the glass contains the same tea iced; the color looks paler and more yellowish.
