Commercial Description

Immediately after harvest, our Japanese growers quickly steam the fresh, organic leaves to preserve the green leaf. An additional step of careful roasting creates the characteristic toasty quality.

The toasted rice flavor is quite strong. Some sips it didn't do much for me, other sips the smoky flavor felt like something I could get used to. I'll be more sure once I've tried a couple more of the bags.

Pretty tasty, though minus the delectably smoky flavor of the Republic of Tea's green tea w. toasted rice. Brews quickly, often on sale at my local coop.
