I found this on sale today at the store, so I picked up one box of this, along with a box of organic genmaicha. Instead of drinking this straight up, I made ochazuke with it! I layered cooked white rice, umeboshi (pickled plum) paste, wakame seaweed flakes, and bonito flakes in a bowl, poured a cup of hot green tea over it, and then topped it with some crumbled seaweed/wasabi flavored rice cake. Umai!
Premium Japanese Green Tea
Tea drinking has been a healthful delight for centuries. It promotes a state of calm serenity while enhancing mental clarity, and fosters an ambiance of repose and relaxation. Choice Organic Premium Japanese Green Tea is made from the first tender leaves of the harvest season. After picking, the leaves are briefly steamed to hold their delicate flavor, rich green color, and full complement of healthful polyphenols. An absolutely superlative green tea, it is uniquely flavorful, mildly stimulating, and promotes an air of well-being.
