Ryokucha Green Tea - Review
Samovar Tea Lounge San Francisco
Green tea is currently one of the biggest trends in food today, loaded
with antioxidants and other essential health benefits. Unlike coffee, it's "gently stimulating," allowing you to feel energized without feeling
jittery. Ryokucha Green Tea from San Francisco's Samovar Tea Lounge raises the bar for how a green tea should taste. One of their featured teas, it includes toasted brown rice imported from Japan. When infused with wok-fired green tea leaves, the result is a rich,
earthy flavor that is irresistible when paired with sushi, other Japanese
cuisine, or even a morning bagel. It's made in-house at the Samovar
Tea Lounge, which also
sells and serves organic, fair trade tea and tea service. In addition, they also offer breakfast, brunch, lunch, high tea and dinner.
According to Samovar, Ryokucha is a converter, meant to convert non-tea
drinkers into devoted followers, and it definitely delivers. As opposed to the overwhelming grass flavor of many green
teas, the roasted brown rice provides a nutty
flavor, making it a cut above the rest.
Price: $16 for a 4.5 oz tin.
