Japanese Genmaicha Green Tea

Regular price £7.49
(19p per cup)

-350 in stock

Top grade Japanese green tea with toasted brown rice.

This Genmaicha is rather special and unusual, as we use a superior Sencha and combine it with organic Japanese toasted brown rice.

Traditionally Genmaicha was made with old, inferior or lower grade sencha and the toasted rice was used as filler to disguise the inferior quality.  We don't do that.

The sencha is crafted by Moriuchi san - one of the most revered tea-masters in Japan.  His 200 year old tea-garden in Shizuoka is still family run, alongside his wife and daughter.

Cost per cup based on 2g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

Origin & Craft

Located between Uchimaki and Miwa Village in Shizuoka, the Moriuchi Tea Garden has been around since the Edo period. The tea is grown and harvested by husband and wife Yoshio and Masumi Moriuchi.

The gardens are steep and rich, surrounded by forests.  Indeed so precipitous is the incline Mr Moriuchi has built a small monorail to lift them up, and the tea down, from the steepest slopes. They have converted the land to organic farming and our senchas are hand picked and handcrafted.
