UMatcha® Roasted Rice
Premium UMatcha Roasted Rice is unlike regular green tea, these tender, shade-grown leaves are ground to a fine powder creating a nutty finish of flavors. This exceptional tea is abundant in nutrients and has the balanced flavors of what is referred to as umami (literally, "yummy" in Japanese). Premium UMatcha Roasted Rice provides warm nuances for sweet baked goods, savory dishes as well as whisked into tea for a latte.

What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Ring it in.....
This is a wonderful full flavored tea.....with a ruffle of grain.......When I lived in Japan we used this tea to ring in the new year.....It was given for New Year's gifts. Glad to rediscover this wonderful tea and the memories it awakened.....
I picked up some Matcha Latte from my beloved TJ's. Mistake. Several sugar-comas later, I tried u•matcha and instantly fell in love! This tea can stand alone. Amazed by how much I enjoyed this unsweetened! Beautiful.
exactly what I was looking for. Whisked into a little very-hot water, then sweetened lightly and lightened with 1/4c half&half -- the perfect morning latte. Yummy rather than sweet -- with all the healthy benefits of macha and that wonderful toasted rice flavor of gen mai cha. Fresh. Green. Toasty. Exactly my cup of tea. Exactly.
Delicious twist on matcha
If you enjoy Tea of Inquiry, or other teas with roasted rice, and you like matcha tea, you'll love this. The rice gives it that same delicious cereal flavor, without overpowering the matcha flavor. I love to have this (and all my matcha) in hot latte form; the cream smooths out the herbacious qualities a little bit.
Everyone has their cup of tea, & this is not mine!
This is reminiscent of the time I took a shot of wheat grass & decided I might as well be eating my lawn mower cuttings. It looks like a muddy green & has a very strong taste of dirt. I can subtly taste the brown rice, & the tea, but overall I just taste a murky dirt, with a bit of a fishy taste. How that got there, I dont know! I'm hoping I can find a way to use it in cooking, as I absolutely loved the tea oil I purchased (about as much as I disliked this) & hope this tea is better suited to cooking. I hate to have wasted 17.50 on this. I'll update my reading after I've tried cooking with it.
