Your FAQs, Answered
For Genmai Cha

Although both Chinese and Japanese Green Teas offer immune boosting and health-giving properties, they are inherently different in terms of their palate and character. Chinese Green Tea has slightly twisted tea leaves, typically presenting a light, clean and refreshing palate, while Japanese Green Teas have flat folded leaves that often omit a nori-like, vegetal palate.

Green tea is what we like to call a self-drinker. It should be served plain with no additions, to preserve the palate it presents.

When over steeped, and prepared at the incorrect temperature, green tea releases tannins that cause the tea to taste bitter. To avoid this bitterness, green teas should be steeped between 30 seconds and 1 minute at a temperature of 180° F or 82° C.

All tea, whether it be White, Green, Oolong or Black, comes from the same plant, the evergreen shrub Camellia Sinensis.

Toasty Tranquility

The Genmai Cha not only smells like toasted rice, it tastes like it too. Unlike other lower-quality Genmai Cha that I have had which tend to be overly astringent, this one is smooth and balanced, perfect from the first sip to the last.

My concentration tea

This is the tea I reach for when I have to get work done. Or when I have to study. It has that comforting, yet serious feel where the tea gently wakes you up while the soft aroma soothes your senses.
