This cup of Sencha tea is made with grilled rice. Kyoto was the birthplace of Genmaicha, where legend tells of a tea farmer who mixed brown rice in with his cheapest blend so that the poor could afford a tea that provided some nutritional value. The lime-colored cup of tea reveals a light, roasted note and a hint of caramel. Once you embrace this unique tea, it will become your get-up and go-to.
