This remarkable Japanese delicacy is a green bancha tea with brown toasted rice added.
It is a Japanese favourite that came about because rice was cheaper than tea, so the tea was bulked up with rice. Today we drink it because of its wonderful toasty taste. It is a full bodied and sweet green tea with a delightful 'baked' character.
Drink from the afternoon onwards.
