This organic genmaicha is a beautifully balanced combination of bright, steamed green tea and roasted rice.
Origin & History
Genmaicha was originally created to make use of lower-quality sencha, as the roasted rice softened any astringency.
In this case, we're using a sencha that is delicious on its own, because we love the flavour of a high-quality genmaicha.
This particular batch of Genmaicha comes from the fabled Yellow Mountain in Anhui Province, China. The pristine organic garden in which it grows offered the best value-for-money (aroma, taste, & environmental stewardship) among all the Genmaicha samples that we tried this year.
