Here comes the “zen-sation” where the artistry of Japanese tea blends meet the creamy indulgence of almond butter - our Matcha Almond Butter and Genmaicha Almond Butter! And yes… we do receive a lot of questions such as “What is genmaicha? What are the differences between matcha and genmaicha?” So, let’s find out together~😉
Matcha Almond Butter: The Classic Jewel from Shizuoka
A well-known tea in Japanese tea culture. Crafted by grinding shade-grown green tea leaves into a fine powder that gives you a unique and rich flavour. When you take a bite, all the thick matcha flavour is punching your taste bud.
Genmaicha Almond Butter: The Toasty Sensation from Kyoto
Also known as “popcorn tea”. It is a mix of sencha (Japanese green tea) and roasted brown rice, giving a toasty aroma. Somehow, it kind of taste like roasted seaweed (amazing right? We also don’t know why haha).
And you know what? The nuttiness of almonds in both Matcha and Genmaicha is elevated by the tea’s soothing warmth.
The Verdict: Shizuoka Matcha or Kyoto Genmaicha?
It’s easy. If you’re someone who loves a rich and bursting tea aroma, Matcha is perfect for you. On the other hand, if you looking for a more comforting, toasty aroma and more family friendly, get Genmaicha.
That’s all, tea lovers~ Hope you enjoy our tea series😘
