Green Tea, Japan Genmaicha, Organic
Ingredients: Green tea, Roasted, Popped rice
Product Information: Genmaicha is a pan-fired sencha tea that is blended with toasted and popped rice giving the appearance of 'popcorn tea'. The cup is somewhat full bodied and sweet with a character akin to toasted rice. A very popular green tea!
Brewing Method: When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times. The secret is to use water that is about 180'F or 80'C. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup, let the tea steep for about 3 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment - do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low - add more water, and so on and so on - until the flavor of the tea is exhausted. Look at the pattern of the leaves in the brew, not only do they foretell your fortune, but you can see the tea leaves, popped rice and toasted kernels.
