SHINCHA! Kawane Genmaicha, Shizuoka Prefecture, 50g - 2017

SHINCHA! Kawane Genmaicha - 2017, Sencha blended with roasted brown rice
Origin: Kawane City, Shizuoka Prefecture
Cultivar: Yabukita
Produces a rich green color with a roasted, somewhat nutty aroma and taste. Although this flavor provides the tea with a robust toasty character, it is relatively smooth and refreshing to drink. A very good palate cleanser after a heavy or oily meal. Genmai-cha has been called "popcorn tea" in English due to the presence of "popped" brown rice kernels present in the blend.
