Yame Genmaicha – 50g Postcard

£9.00

A delicious, nutty tasting blend of sencha and toasted brown rice. Unlike most genmaicha, both the tea and the rice are grown by the same person on Mr. Ohashi’s small farm in Yame. He has not used pesticides for over 45 years and makes his own natural fertilisers.

We recommend brewing this with slightly hotter water than a regular sencha to achieve a balance between the sweet, grassy taste of the tea and the toasted, chestnut-like flavour of the rice.
