Celadon Tiger is a premium genmaicha created by combining toasted rice with sencha green tea from Yame in the Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan.  Yame is located on the southernmost Japanese island of Kyushu, where the high temperature days and low temperature nights provide ideal growing conditions for the best teas. 

The starches and sugars in the toasted rice give the tea a slightly roasty, nutty flavor.  This compliments the floral aroma and flavors of the sencha tea.
