GenmaiCha Green Tea - Sedona Arizona's Full-Leaf Tea Store
This Japanese loose leaf GREEN TEA 50/50 blend of roasted rice (and a tiny touch of popcorn) and deep-steamed SenCha produced from 1st and 2nd harvest leaves (spring & early summer), specifically grown in Shizuoka, about 90 miles southwest of Tokyo and not far from Mount Fuji. A popular and classic Japanese tea with a rich green hue. It’s characterized first with a savory nuttiness, then by a very slight grassy aroma and a mild sweet taste.
LIGHTLY CAFFEINATED (approx 15% of the caffeine as coffee)
AVAILABLE AS: 2 OZ Package, 1 OZ TastingSample
Package size is 2 ounces of full leaf tea, which yields approximately 25 first cups. Tasting sample is 1 ounce for about 10-12 cups.
BREWING: 1 level teaspoon (about 3 grams or 1/10 oz) for every 8 oz of 175°F fresh water. Steep for 1-2 minutes or to desired taste. A second and third infusion or more is possible by increasing steep time 30 seconds each time. Japanese tea is especially enjoyed as a “true cold-brew", by brewing for a least 10-15 minutes with melting ice.
