YMY 1690 Genmai Green Tea

A convivial drink in Japan shared at home with friends. This unique tea is made with green tea and brown rice. Light golden color and nut-like flavor and aroma. The Rosengarten Newsletter* gives this tea 5 stars and says, "devastatingly delicious...wild nose that goes beyond toasted rice, almost to the buttery popcorn at the bottom of the bag. Huge and complex toasted flavors on palate. Smooth, round, non-astringent, thoroughly satisfying feel. A must".

*The Rosengarten Newsletter, winner of the 2003 James Beard Award as the best food and wine newsletter in the country, covers the most exciting, undiscovered food products, restaurants, wines and travel destinations in the world.

In 1690 in Japan, the Yamamoto family began producing premium teas, a tradition that continues to this day. More than three centuries of experience go into the selection and processing of Yamamotoyama Teas, among the finest in the world.

"The toasty flavor of Genmai is very nostalgic for me. Just the aroma alone brings me back to memories of my mother soaking handfuls of toasted rice in her tea—right before she ate it with a spoon! I haven't yet experienced another tea that can bring me such a sense of home." - Alaina H. (Wholesale Marketing Manager)
