Genmaicha is one of Japan's most well-known green teas. It means "brown rice tea" and was originally created as peasant's tea - brown rice was mixed with then expensive green tea to make tea more accessible to the common man. This Genmaicha is made with premium green tea and 100% Japanese-grown sweet mochi rice. It has a rich, nutty-sweet profile and grassy, savory and roasted flavors. Genmaicha pairs well with a large variety of main dishes as well as dessert and breakfast bread.
Genmaicha is rich in polyphenols such as catechins and other antioxidants. It helps to reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases, and lower blood pressure. It also boosts the immune system and increases energy.
Jasmine pearls are green tea leaves scented with fresh jasmine blossoms. The green tea leaves are handrolled into pearls that slowly unfold with rich and floral aroma as the tea's being steeped. This tea is medium-bodied with a smooth floral finish.
Green tea has high levels of antioxidants, which destroy harmful agents that cause diseases and compromise the immune system. It helps to lower cholesterol, improve blood flow, and reduce a range of heart issues. The scent of jasmine promotes a sense of calm.
Matcha is Japan's legendary powdered tea. This steamed blend of sencha and matcha is from Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan. This blend has the fresh and grassy flavor of a premium-tier sencha with notes of rustic vegetation and raisin. This tea pairs well with seafood, vegetables and dessert.
