Otsuka Japanese Shizuoka Genmaicha Green Tea Bags 2g x 15 Units
オーツカ 国産 静岡玄米茶 ティーバッグ 2g×15個
The tea bags contain a blend of high-quality green tea leaves and roasted brown rice. The green tea used in genmaicha is typically sencha or bancha, while the roasted brown rice adds a nutty and toasty flavour to the tea.
The genmaicha tea bags from Otsuka are made with tea leaves sourced from the Shizuoka region in Japan. Shizuoka is known for its ideal tea-growing conditions, including fertile soil, ample rainfall, and mild temperatures, resulting in high-quality tea leaves!
To prepare a cup of genmaicha tea, you can follow these general brewing instructions. Begin by heating water to about 70-80°C (158-176°F). Place one tea bag in a cup or teapot, and pour the hot water over it. Let the tea steep for 1-2 minutes, adjusting the steeping time to your preference. Finally, remove the tea bag and enjoy the nutty and aromatic flavour of genmaicha.
