This wonderful tea is a Japanese brown rice and green tea. The rice is toasted, sometimes popping like popcorn, causing a nutty taste. The green tea has a buttery taste. The combination produces a taste that is almost like buttered popcorn.
Created by poor Japanese hundreds of years ago, the rice was used as a filler with the green tea. This tea is easy to drink and has been known to help the stomach feel better.
This loose leaf tea is sold by the ounce.
