Excellent harmony between stickiness and firmness, with a refreshing taste
The harmony between the rice’s stickiness and firmness is excellent, and it has a luscious sweet aftertaste. The white sparkling grains are large and defined, and come apart nicely in the mouth. Filling but not heavy, Seiten no Hekireki will have you asking for another helping.
Seiten no Hekireki is cultivated in well-drained or semi-dry paddies in the fertile desirable lands of central and northwestern Tsugaru.
The name Seiten no Hekireki conjures the image of a sudden bolt of lightning (hekireki) appearing in a clear blue sky (seiten). It is the wish of the farmers to produce this rice with such a striking presence.
