Japanese Genmai Cha Kirishima Organic Traditional Loose Leaf Green Tea Genmaicha Or Gen Mai Cha


Kirishima is in the Kagoshima Prefecture on the Island of Kyushu, it is famous for its teas and in August 2018 took places first to seventh in a Tea Ceremony Competition held in Shizuoka, halfway between Tokyo and Nagoya. We have included a picture of the winners holding a banner in a Kirishima tea garden. The organic Sencha leaves and the organic rice are grown in this Prefecture. The aroma and taste are wonderful, a really fresh brew with hardly any astringency and what is there is complimented by the taste of the puffed rice. Genmai Cha is traditionally an afternoon drink or drunk after a meal, I think you can enjoy this any time of the day.

I use hot 70oC - 80oC water and only infuse for a couple of minutes but you can get many infusions from this high quality traditional Japanese speciality.
