Harlequin Matcha Genmaicha is a certified organic tea from Tenryu, Shizuoka, Japan.  Sencha green tea leaves and roasted brown rice are masked with a sprinkling of matcha powdered tea.  After the initial infusion, the brown rice's color is revealed.  The Matcha adds further depth and complexity to the fragrant liquor.  

Genmaicha is a highly nimble green tea.  It brews at a higher temperature than other green teas and brews best when doing acrobatics in a tea pot while under a tea kettle's steady water stream.
