|STORY BEHIND THE TEA|
This Genmaicha from Ippodo is a little bit different than what you normally get when buying similar teas in Japan. It has a larger amount of tea in it giving the liquor more body, sweetness and depth. You can also find some popped grains of rice in the mix. A soothing everyday tea.
Genmaicha goes well with meals. It is also a good choice for ochazuke (tea poured over rice accompanied by Japanese pickled vegetables).
