As unusual as it sounds, this sweet tea has a distinctive nutty flavour that perfectly balances with the deliciousness of the green tea. This pack contains 500g of the loose leaf tea, which is a great conversation starter and recommended for those looking to try something new. Also known by the Japanese name 'Genmaicha'.
A sweet tasting green tea, Japanese Rice is mild with a nutty taste from the roasted rice.

Green tea and brown rice
Green tea is best made with hot water that has reached 80˚c, not quite at boiling point (in this instance a watched pot shouldn’t boil!). A trick to get your water to 80˚c is to boil the water and then transfer it to a cold jug before you pour the water from the jug into your teapot or mug. When you’re making green tea you do not need to warm your teapot ahead of making the tea. Use one teaspoon of loose-leaf tea per person. Pour the hot water over the tea to release its full flavour and allow to brew for 3 minutes. If you like your tea strong add more tea, don't steep for longer as this will turn the flavours bitter.
Green tea is best served on its own, without milk or lemon.
Our Japanese Rice tea is available in packs of 100g or 500g of loose leaf tea.
Pair this tea with a light rice dish. Ochazuke is considered a snack in Japan, so why not enjoy a bowl with a cup of tea mid afternoon?
Make sure you store your tea in an airtight container – a tin is better than plastic, or seal up the packaging it arrives in. Although tea feels dry, it contains 3% moisture and oils that are essential to its flavour. If not properly stored these can evaporate. Keep your tea in a fairly cool, dry place, which is out of sunlight and try to keep away from any spices that could taint the flavour.
