Provenance: Uji, Japan
Genmaicha Tea Grade: Our Genmaicha is made using high quality Sencha, blended with roasted rice grains. The Sencha is from the Ichibancha or first flush harvest, the first of the year, taking place in early Spring. This crop is richer in aromas than later teas and more highly prized.
Genmaicha Tea Origin: Our Genmaicha is grown in Uji, Kyoto. This tea is sometimes known as the 'people's tea' as it was originally drunk by poor Japanese. The rice was added as a filler to reduce the price of the tea. Today, it is popular with all. The use of high quality Sencha in our Genmaicha means it is by no means an ordinary tea anymore.
Genmaicha Tea Flavour: Genmaicha tea makes a light yellow liquor. The roasted rice dominates the aroma but with fresh Sencha undertones. The rice provides a rich, roasty and hearty flavour, but the liquor has the freshness of a Sencha. It is very well balanced and flavoured.
