ingredients: organic sencha green tea, organic toasted rice
Japanese legend tells of a servant named Gen Mai who created this tea after rice fell from his pocket into a samurai’s pot. The result was a nutty flavor that enriched the lively clean taste of Sencha, a traditional Japanese green tea. Picked in the spring, its needle-like leaves are rolled, flattened and steamed then blended with toasted rice to create a savory brew. With a bright yellow hue and robust aroma, Gen Mai Cha is a hearty and popular tea commonly served at meals, as it cleanses the palate.
