2023 Spring Matcha Genmaicha
Genmaicha is a combination of sencha and toasted brown rice. Our Matcha Genmaicha is our Genmaicha, which is then dusted in premium-grade 2023 Spring matcha. The added matcha gives the brew - whether hot, iced or cold brewed, an added level of richness and umami, with a thicker mouthfeel that is both refreshing and bright. We hope you enjoy this special treat.
The toasting of the brown rice, and the blending is all done in-house by our friends over in Japan.
Made with 100% organic ingredients.
