From Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms

We isolated Genmaicha’s delightful roasted rice and created Genmai. Made by roasting mochi rice, it is sweeter and crunchier than regular rice. You can add this Genmai to any tea of your choice, creating an original sibling of Genmaicha. Genmai can also be added as a satisfying garnish to salads, soups, sandwiches, or even eaten alone as a healthy snack.

About Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms View company

It started with a single cup of tea. As the legend goes, our president Akihiro Kita, or Akky-san, visited Wazuka, Kyoto one fateful day. At the time, Akky-san was still a college student in search for life's calling. After trying the region's famous Ujicha (literally meaning tea from the Uji district), he immediately fell in love and his passion for green tea was born. He had finally found what he was looking for in that one simple cup of tea. After fifteen years of learning to master the art of growing tea from tea farmers in Wazuka, Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms was born and as they say, the rest is history. So what's an Obubu? Obubu is the Kyoto slang for tea. Here in the international department we call ourselves Obubu Tea. That's "Tea Tea" for the bilinguals. We love tea so much, we just had to have it twice in our name. Now Obubu means more than just tea to us. It means, family, friends, passion and the place we call home. More than just tea. Though the roots of Obubu stem from tea, it has become more than that over the years. Obubu is an agricultural social venture, operating with three (1) bring quality Japanese tea to the world (2) contribute to the local and global community through tea (3) revitalize interest in tea and agriculture through education.

DIY Kyoto Obubu Advent Calendar – Day 14

Yassssssss! Who needs genmaicha when you can have just the genmai? :P

So delicious. Toasty, nutty, buttery, so satisfying… Reminds me of a cross between popcorn and brown rice, with such a nice balance of rich nuttiness and cozy roasty notes.

Perfect evening tea… :D
