It is sencha with toasted brown rice - I wonder who thought that up? This provides a little heft and cracker-like flavor to this green tea. I'm rating it in 2018, but I liked it a little more in some prior years.

A good example of this style of tea. Dry leaf’s aroma is a little weaker than the brewed tea, but it has good, toasty flavor and a round, smooth mouthfeel. Does tend to become a little astringent if brewed for too long — I set my timer for 2:45 so I can be sure I get my infuser out before three minutes.
