genmai cha loose leaf
by mighty leaf (1 review)
price level: $$$$
This blend features a superior grade of top quality Sencha with hulled, boiled, and roasted rice grains that are skillfully processed and strictly graded. The fresh vegetal notes of authentic Japan Sencha is moderated by the sweet, nutty mouthfeel of roasted rice grains. The orange grains are from Japanese sweet sticky rice, lending a caramel sweet note and smooth, stock-y body. This combination is a great introduction to Japan green teas, and it goes particularly well with foods from that country.
Good Genmacha green tea. The toasted notes aren’t my favorite
