Green Tea &- Brown Rice
Gen Mai Cha, or brown rice tea, is fresh green tea prepared with puffs of brown rice. Our starts with great organic whole leaf sencha (sun-finished green tea) balanced by just enough organic roasted rice to give us that great Two Leaves And A Bud flavor.
Tea is like wine.
At Two Leaves And A Bud Tea Company, we use only the finest teas, grown in single geographic regions, using traditional growing methods. The quality of tea varies from hillside to hillside. Our experienced tasters select only the finest growers to bring you the tastiest teas and herbal infusions.
We never blend with less expensive "filler teas."
The finest teas come from the Two Leaves And A Bud of the tea flower. Our biodegradable tea sachets give the two leaves and a bud space to expand. Infusing your mug with the complex. Nuanced flavor of a great cuppa tea. That's something you can't get from a paper teabag.
We are based in the roaring fork valley of Colorado, just down the road from Aspen. Snowy mornings, even in the summer, are not uncommon, and we drink a lot of tea, because we could not find a great cuppa tea, we founded Two Leaves And A Bud to steep our own.
