A new green tea, Genmaicha translates as ‘Brown Rice Tea’ and is sometimes referred to as ‘the people’s tea’. A unique Japanese tea, it was originally created centuries ago – at a time when the price of tea was unaffordable to most and blending with rice made it affordable to many more people.
This blend of steamed green tea and roasted brown rice, produces a savoury, mellow, gently roasted flavour.
Drink and enjoy at any time of day – it pairs particularly well with fish dishes and Asian cuisine.
These innovative pyramid bags are spacious enough to hold whole leaves rather than the small cut tea in regular teabags. This makes a difference to the quality of the brew because whole leaf tea has more flavour and complexity.
