The new Google Doodle today celebrates the life of the late biochemist Michiyo Tsujimura, Japan’s first woman doctor of agriculture whose groundbreaking research of green tea explains its bitter taste.
The illustration shows Tsujimura conducting research surrounded by a steaming cup of green tea and tea leaves. Today marks her 133rd birthday.
People are using green tea as a replacement for water when trying to make instant ramen or noodles, and they seem to love the results.
