Toasted rice added to green bancha enhances the flavor with a subtle nuttiness, though originally the practice came about as a way to stretch tea during the war years in Japan. This premium blend also contains matcha, which adds a brilliant jade color and elevates this brew to something much higher than simple peasant tea.
