Japanese Genmaicha Loose Leaf Green Tea
Top grade Japanese green loose leaf tea with toasted brown rice.
This Genmaicha is rather special and unusual, as we use a superior Sencha and combine it with organic Japanese toasted brown rice.
Traditionally Genmaicha was made with old, inferior or lower grade sencha and the toasted rice was used as filler to disguise the inferior quality. We don't do that.
The sencha is crafted by Moriuchi san - one of the most revered tea-masters in Japan. His 200 year old tea-garden in Shizuoka is still family run, alongside his wife and daughter.
