Clearspring Organic Japanese Genmaicha delivers a delicate balance of ﬂavours combining the subtle notes of green tea with the delightfully nutty aroma of roasted brown rice. The tea leaves are grown in the luscious rolling hills around Kyoto and Kyushu, areas known for their ideal climatic and soil conditions which produce some of the ﬁnest tea in Japan. The leaves are steamed, rolled and combined with roasted brown rice to create a unique yet authentic Genmaicha tea experience.
Our new Teabags range is non-GM and in 100% sustainable packaging. The teabags are stitched together using a unique folding process and are staple free. The strings are made of 100% organic cotton and the outer carton is recyclable and printed using vegetable-based ink.

In the hills around Kyoto, the third generation of the Nagata family use special organic methods, known as Nature Farming, to produce a range of exquisite green teas for Clearspring.
The ancient farming approach used by the Nagatas builds up soil vitality by maintaining a semi-wild environment, where the plants are not overly protected and gain nourishment from repeated applications of compost made from tea clippings and dried leaves, which together with regular mulching helps control weed growth and maintain soil moisture.
Whilst most tea farmers spray their plants with pesticides and herbicides 15-20 times a year, the Nagatas' tea bushes have a vigour that enables them to thrive without chemical inputs.
The Nagatas' yields may be lower than average but their plants have far less mould and blight. They remain productive for up to 40 years, twice as long as the typical tea bush treated with chemicals.
As well as growing tea, the Nagatas undertake the skilful blanching, drying and roasting processes to bring out the unique flavours of each individual blend.
I've been enjoying these tea bags from Clearspring for a long time. The tea itself is extremely good. However, the quality of the bags seems to have deteriorated. The last couple of orders I've placed have seen the bags split and the leaves spill out into the cup. If not already in place, quality control of the bags should be and any defective ones rejected. Surely the point of using bags as opposed to loose leaves is that using a strainer should not be necessary!
This Genmaicha is very good. It arrived promptly and was fairly priced. Packaging is environmentally friendly too.
This is the MOST delicious tea ever! I was introduced to this tea by a friend and now I can’t live without it. Fresh, nutty, invigorating but delicate, it’s happiness in a cup. Try it! You won’t regret it.
There is a lot of various green teas on the market but I love the taste of roasted rice in thts one. In perfect balance with green tea.
Delighted with the product and the service. Thank you. Sonia Argy
