Ochazuke means “Submerging into tea”. (The Japanese Kanji Ocha=tea and zuke =submerging)
Ochazuke is made by pouring Genmai Cha or Sen Cha on a bowl of rice. You can always add something on the top to give it a personal twist, like grilled salmon or some traditional Japanese pickles. By adding some additional toppings, it gives a variety of salty flavors that enlightens your taste buds. All Sen Cha and Genmai Cha loose leaf products are 20% off for National Nutrition Month March.
