Green tea is the dominate blend in Japan and, as a result, many separate tea blends exist for Japanese green tea. All Japanese green tea blends vary in preparation, and our store carries sencha and and genmaicha, as well as other green tea blends. Genmaicha green tea, for example, is a blend combined with rice and, when steeped, the resulting taste is described as being toasty. Sencha green tea, on the other hand, is a basic and smooth blend of Japanese tea that, aside from being one of Japan's more popular green tea variations, is used in tea ceremonies. Sencha green tea, in addition, comes in caffeinated and decaffeinated varieties.
