Organic Green Tea

Organic

Fresh, vegetative green tea from Japan is combined with toasted rice. There is a natural sweetness and almost chewy character to the finish of this tea. During the firing of the rice, it is not uncommon for rice to ‘pop’ not unlike popcorn, hence the pet name ‘popcorn-tea’. A unique flavor that stands out as a cult favorite in the tea world.

Unique nutty flavor

I had never heard of this tea and ordered the sample to try it. What a unique toasty/nutty flavor, It is mild and I added just a small amount of stevia and it really brought out the toasted rice flavor!

Toasty and delicious!

My absolute favorite tea is barley tea--- or should I say WAS barley tea. THIS tea is now at the top of my list with the toasty and nutty flavor of the toasted rice making it extra delicious! I love how the toasty flavor works with the sweet green tea. Not bitter at all, this has a rich flavor that I will have to reorder asap in a larger size for sure!
