Tea Advent(ure) Day 14: Genmaicha Yamabuki
This classic Japanese tea is a world-renowned combination of green tea leaves with lightly toasted grains of brown rice. While adding toasted rice was initially done with Bancha teas (‘last tea,’ a lower grade of green tea) to bulk up the quantity and lower the price for poorer members of society, the distinct warm flavour of Genmaicha is now enjoyed across Japan and the world. This particular Genmaicha is made with the tender first flush leaves of a traditional Sencha harvest, and paired with organic toasted rice from the Hokkaido region.
