How It Tastes

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.

History

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.
