This is, without exception, the most beautifully articulated genmaicha Bellocq have ever encountered.  This organic tea presents with a wonderful clarity and balance, and is rich with wholesome toasty notes.  Grown in the Ryogochi region of Shizuoka, an area renowned for its fine teas,  this excellent genmaicha is a blend of equal parts first flush chumushi sencha and roasted organic brown rice.

While genmaicha is quite beloved, it is most often of mediocre quality.  This genmaicha, however,  is a revelation. The farmer, Mr. Iwasaki, has followed in his father's footsteps, and is a passionate steward of the land. He has created an exceptional tea; both the fine quality of the ingredients and their subsequent dialog make this a necessary and welcome addition to every genmaicha lover's tea collection.
