Genmaicha is a personal favourite of ours, it makes a great alternative breakfast tea and is a great introduction to Japanese Green Tea.
This tea is a blend of Bancha leaves and roasted white mochi rice. A bright cup with a light gold tea soup, Medium and rounded body. Satisfyingly toasty, nutty, fragrant corn aroma with a fresh, sweet flavour which compliments meals perfectly.
The tea has been grown by unshaded cultivation and harvested in June. Then undergone steaming, rolling and drying process.
Wazuka is a tea town in the southeastern area of Kyoto Prefecture. Wazuka has been a tea growing location since the Kamakura period as a main producer following Uji tea processing methods. It thought that the Kaijūsen-ji temple introduced tea to the area and Zen Buddhist monk, Shonin Jishin was the first to cultivate tea on Mt Jubu and then in Wazuka.
