New Season GENMAICHA (Special Matcha-Injected Grade) (50 g)

$19.00

A delicious blend of green tea, toasted rice and matcha powder. Fresh as!

Product Description

Quick & easy to brew, this new season genmaicha mixed with matcha is a brilliant introduction to Japanese green teas.

In the weeks leading up to harvest, the tea farmers of Uji shade their plants. The result is greater flavour due to the extra chlorophyll that the plants are forced to produce. 

The chlorophyll-rich leaves are combined with the nutty goodness of roasted brown rice and dusted with shade-grown matcha.

The extra dash of matcha adds even more depth of flavour. As we like to say, this new season genmaicha is like liquid jade in your teacup. 

Brewing & Enjoying New Season Genmaicha

Start with 4 to 5 grams (about 2 heaped teaspoons) per pot (10 grams for large pots). Add really hot water (at least 95 degrees Celsius) to the pot and brew for 10 to 20 seconds.  The nectar is a beautiful peridot-green. Yields 3 brews.

Finest Sencha

This sencha is fabulous. Such intensity and purity of flavour.One of the best I've tried

Yes!

MATCHA (Unkaku: ‘Crane in the Clouds’)

Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!

Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.

The Bordeaux of teas

This tea has a fabulous earthiness and funkiness. But really it's like a wine that needs to be cellared for a few years. Good Puer aged for a few years is tea like no other. The roasted earthy notes will intensify and soften over time.

The Bordeaux of teas...Love that description

Naturally malty and creamy black tea

As someone who doesn't normally drink black tea, this tea would convert me.Naturally malty and even creamy, something I haven't tasted before in a black tea.Fantastic flavour and would match brilliantly with milk and as a base for a chai tea.

A really unique Japanese green tea blend

As someone who loves the intense flavour of straight matcha and traditional genmaicha, I thought this blend was a bit odd just from reading the description.But after trying it wow. You get the traditional genmaicha flavour but the added dusting of matcha dials up the flavour intensity without overpowering it. Great for those whom matcha is a bit too overpowering and want something more for everyday drinking.

Quick and delicious tea

The genmaicha tea has a lovely nutty flavour and is great by itself or accompanied by snacks. The tea leaves last a long time, with the flavour of the tea remaining strong after multiple steeps. The short brewing time makes it a very good tea for those busy days, and can also be taken cold as a refreshing drink.

Glad you enjoyed the genmaicha!
