In contrast to our Everyday Genmaicha, which is made with 1st harvest sencha, the Organic Genmaicha is made with high quality 2nd harvest bancha harvested in June resulting in a lighter tasting yet highly refreshing genmaicha. Well worth a side by side tasting...
Grown and produced by the Nakai family, the current being the eighth generation to carry on the craft and tradition of authentic, loose leaf organic tea. In 1980 the family returned to the traditional way of farming by abandoning chemical fertilizers and pesticides and instead, let nature do what it has always done...take care of herself.

As with most of our teas, this tea can be steeped several times. Second infusions are usually made with slightly hotter water and about half the time. Third or fourth infusions require longer times of 90+ seconds. Please remember, these are guidelines to get you started and you may find your preference is to adjust them.
