The Story

Comfort in a cup! In addition to toasted brown rice and mochi puffs, stone-milled Uji matcha is added to this very special genmaicha, a collaboration with venerable teamaker Horii Shichimeien.

It makes a glowing emerald green liquor filled with flavors of buttered popcorn, croissant, sweet leaves, roasted nuts, toasted grains, and a subtle bitter touch from high grade matcha that rounds it all out. While we like genmaicha in general, this one really stands out - which is of course why we had to bring it to you!

With roots dating back to the Edo period, Horii Shichimeien pioneered methods of teamaking that are still in use today, especially the way that matcha is produced. Visiting them and their tea farm in Uji was a real treat, and we're honored to be able to present you with this tea!
