Genmaicha - Down to Earth

Regular price $12.99 Sale

This blend was created many years ago in Japan by mixing pieces of roasted brown rice and traditional green tea to increase the quantity of the tea.  Lucky for us, this practice created a delicious blend of warm nutty flavors from the rice and traditional bold flavor of green tea. 

Did You Know? Genmaicha has historically been used to ease the stomach too!  Give it a try!

 More Information: 

Green tea is processed and grown in a variety of ways, depending on the type of green tea desired. As a result of these methods, maximum amounts of polyphenols and volatile organic compounds are retained, affecting aroma and taste. The growing conditions can be broken down into two basic types − those grown in the sun and those grown under the shade. The green tea plants are grown in rows that are pruned to produce shoots in a regular manner, and in general are harvested three times per year. The first flush takes place in late April to early May. The second harvest usually takes place from June through July, and the third picking takes place in late July to early August. Sometimes, there will also be a fourth harvest. It is the first flush in the spring that brings the best-quality leaves, with higher prices to match.
