Origin: Organic Sencha, Matcha powder, and Toasted Brown Rice from Japan. Blended in San Francisco.
Flavor Profile: Forward notes of toasted brown rice crisps met with sweet green flavors that suggest grass and kelp. This tea is roasty delicious, full bodied, milky, and slightly malty.
Tea Story:Our version of the classic Japanese Genmaicha. This tea is a converter. It converts non-tea drinkers into devoted followers. Check out this infusion and you will be mesmerized and delighted. A stunning green color, this brew is like a meal in itself, a quintessential breakfast green tea.
House blended, we make this grassy, milky, roasty, malty, sweet, and smooth tea by blending organic matcha powder, organic toasted brown rice, and organic asamushi sencha.
Samovarian Poetry: Genmaicha, Samovar Tea Lounge-style. Japanese matcha powder blended with roasted brown rice & sencha. A meal in itself, nutty, grassy. Ideal for breakfast.
Food Pairing: This tea is like a meal in itself! Try using this brew like we do at Samovar when we make ochazuke, tea soup. Pour it over some seasoned steamed rice, and add some steamed veggies, and a baked piece of terriyaki salmon or tofu… yummy! Drink the Ryokucha with your morning bagel and lox for a ideal pairing of flavors of baked bread and sea.
