|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.
It is also cultivated and processed under conditions that comply with the requirements for JAS organic certification, which is equivalent to the EU and USDA organic certification.
Genmaicha goes well with meals. It is also a good choice for ochazuke (tea poured over rice accompanied by Japanese pickled vegetables).
