Genmaicha Green Tea

Description

Description

Mellow and soothing with the freshness of other Sencha green teas, Genmaicha green tea has been beloved by green tea drinkers in Japan for centuries, and its popularity is now spreading across the world. If you want to enjoy a reasonably priced Sencha green tea, then Genmaicha green tea is a great option.

Typically, Genmaicha green tea is created through mixing together brown puffed rice with Sencha tea leaves, either from the second harvest, Nibancha, or the third harvest, Sanbancha. Our Genmaicha green tea, however, comes from the first harvest of the year, Ichibancha. This provides our Genmaicha green tea with a wonderfully roasted blend that’s richer and more full bodied than typical Genmaicha green teas.

As with other Sencha teas, the leaves for Genmaicha green tea are grown in the fertile soils and sunlit plains of Kyoto. This city is the birthplace of Japanese tea culture, making our Genmaicha green tea as authentic as it comes and a great starting point for embarking on an exploration of the world of Japanese tea.

Being a green tea, Genmaicha offers many health benefits. In fact, studies have found that drinking green tea every day can help to lower cholesterol, relieve anxiety and stress and even assist with weight loss. So along with the delicious taste, you gain benefits for your mind, body and soul in every cup.

    Bought as a present for valentines day. Arrived right on time. Packaging is plain, brown box. Packed in tons of shreded paper. Tea itself is great! Samples looked as they do in picture. Aromatic and tasty.

    Excellent quality teas from WellTea! I am now regular customer! This is real Japanese Genmaicha. I am drinking green teas for about 12 year now and this is the best quality tea I came across in UK. Packaging also was excellent and I have received my parcel next day. Thank so much for professional service! Highly recommended!

    Bought as a present for someone who love Japanese tea. Was quite disappointed with packaging as it comes in a plain silver bag with a sticker. Thankfully tea itself tastes great and my cousin was very happy with it.

WellTea Green Mate & Coconut Sencha Green Tea Quick View

Green Mate & Coconut Sencha Green Tea

This tea provides a beautiful tea decorated with petals combined with shreds of coconut and the green mate herb from South America. Green mate herb is traditionally drunk on its own in a mug with hot water to create a spicy drink. Some drinkers like to add sugar or honey, but we’ve created a concoction of our own. What we’ve done is create a tea which combines this herb with Green Sencha from Japan, coconut shreds, blossoms from roses and cornflower and some mild flavouring to create a tea that’s filled with colour and offers a distinctly spicy taste mixed with the soft undertones of mild coconut.

WellTea Gyokuro Sencha Green Tea Quick View

Gyokuro Kerigane Green Tea

Gyokuro Kerigane green tea offers the deliciously luxuriant aroma and taste of a premium Gyokuro tea for a fraction of the cost. This is because Gyokuro Kerigane green tea is made from the stems and veins of the only highest-quality Gyokuro tea leaves, which provides it with a distinctively sweetness of taste. The reason for the typically high price tag of Gyokuro Kerigane green tea is due to its rarity. This is firstly because there are fewer organic growers of this type of tea in Japan, compared to the more common Sencha tea plant. Secondly, knowing that it is a highly prized type of tea, growers will often choose to share it with their friends and family rather than sell it for profit.

WellTea Kukicha Green Tea Quick View

Kukicha Green Tea

Kukicha tea is fondly nicknamed ‘twig tea’ for its distinctive appearance. Pronounced Ku-key-cha, this tea is made up of tea leaves mixed with young tea plant stems. So when buying a packet of Kukicha you will discover that it contains both medium-green and yellow pieces of tea plant. Kukicha green tea is a delightful Japanese tea for sharing a pot with friends or a relaxing cup on your own. Kukicha is regarded as one of the freshest tasting Japanese green teas, with a slightly bitter taste. When added to a teapot or cup with near boiling water, Kukicha then takes on a pale green-yellow colour and sweet scented fragrance. Another key characteristic of Kukicha green tea is that it is not roasted after it is harvested, but merely steamed. If you prefer roasted tea, WellTea supplies lots of roasted varieties of Japanese green tea, offering more woody tones of honey and grain.

Even when it is brewed for the first time, Kagoshima Sencha Yabukita doesn’t have any astringency and has a smooth body. Its deliciously sweet aftertaste also lingers, inviting you to take another sip.
