No. 76, Matcha Iri Genmaicha

In our high-grade version of a increasingly popular Japanese tea, sencha is blended with toasted rice and then covered with matcha aoarashi. This tea yields a pleasant brew of toasted rice, umami, and butter flavors with notes of pine resin. 

Our Matcha Iri Genmaicha is only available in 2oz bags, as each bag is nitrogen flushed and sealed in Japan to maximize the tea's freshness.
