About this tea

Tea Story

One of Japan's most unique teas, Genmai Cha means “roasted rice tea.” This blend originated in an era when tea was a barely affordable luxury; Japanese peasants would stretch their precious supply by mixing it with comparatively inexpensive roasted rice. Over time, the toasty, malty-smooth flavor developed an international following. Ours features a superior grade of top quality Sencha with hulled, boiled and roasted rice grains that are skillfully processed and strictly graded. The result is a very drinkable beverage with a rounded body and satisfying aroma.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to boil; let it cool for 1 minute (190° F) before steeping tea for 3 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.
