Toasty, nutty and jammy notes leap from a cup that is also sprinkled with lightly vegetative green tea notes.
Legend says that long ago there was a samurai and his servant, Genmai. One day, Genmai was preparing tea for his master and in his rushed state he accidentally dropped rice in the samurai's cup. Genmai brought the tea to him, hoping his master wouldn't notice. The samurai loved the tea so much he named it after Genmai.
Today, we enjoy Genmaicha. A jammy, fresh, and nutty-tasting blend of premium Chinese tea leaves and popped rice.
