Kitoku Iwate Ginga No Shizuku Rice, 2 Kg
For rice as white and bright as stars in the night sky.
When you're after a rice that reflects the quality and care gone into providing the perfect balance of taste, texture and appearance, Ginga no Shizuku ("Galaxy Drops") sends your senses on a trip of a lifetime. Cultivated in an area high up in mountain ranges of Iwate prefecture, where many fresh springs flow and there's lots of exposure to sun and blue skies, the environment is ideal for growing naturally firm rice that can protect itself well from the colder temperatures and risk of disease. This gives it more time to take in rich nutrients from the mountain soil, giving each grain a chance to truly develop a rich glow and sweetness that can keep it both fresh and sticky over long periods once cooked, perfect for either onigiri or sushi. The light fluffiness of each mouthful offers a wonderfully balanced flavour and texture, that'll leave you dreaming for more with a delicate aftertaste.
