We just sampled a wonderful new Genmaicha; this one without added matcha.  This is a beautiful tea to look at!   The roasted rice; all brown and taosty looking really stands out against the bright white puffed rice and rich dark geen tea.  This one will be added to our menu when it arrives mid-March.   Leaving out the extra matcha allows the toasted brown rice to come out much more strongly and creates a very sweet drinkable tea.   This is perhaps the all time best green tea to convert your friends, or yourself, to the world of green tea.   We’re just about to cup the second steeping to see how that turns out!Genmai Cha
