At Hibiki-an we use only the highest quality tea leaves in our tea bags.
Each specially-designed biodegradable teabag, which does not affect the flavor or aroma, is filled with whole-leaf Genmaicha Matcha-iri, so you can enjoy the elegant flavor of Genmaicha Matcha-iri in no time at all! The individual teabags are much larger than standard paper teabags - over 2 x 2 inches in a unique pyramid shape.
The teabags are made from plant-based polylactic acid (PLA).
Our Genmaicha Matcha-iri is a wonderful blend of Sencha, puffed brown rice, and Matcha. The Matcha powder lightly coats the Sencha leaves and rice, adding a fresh and mellow taste. Due to the rice, this tea has the rich and hearty flavor of roasted grains or coffee but the freshness of Matcha and Sencha. It is very well balanced, full flavored and smooth.
In many cases, Genmaicha is made from a mix of puffed rice and low grade Sencha, low grade Nibancha (tea from the second harvest of the year) or Sanbancha (tea from the third harvest of the year). Our Genmaicha Matcha-iri is made from only Ichibancha (tea from the first harvest of the year) and is available at a reasonable price. So we are certain that its taste and aroma is much more flavorful and smooth than any other Genmaicha.
We have designed our teabag teas to brew quickly and easily in the shortest possible time, while still retaining the fullest flavor and aroma, even when brewed in a teacup and not a teapot.
Of course, this item as well as our other teas may be reused three times. Each infusion has a unique flavor and aroma.
There are 28 bags in each packet of Teabag Genmaicha Matcha-iri.
If you want a quick and easy way to enjoy Genmaicha Matcha-iri, this is the perfect tea for you! And we are certain that it is also perfect for taking along on a trip, to the office, and so on or introducing genuine Japanese tea to beginners.
