Genmaicha Green Tea

Tasting Notes: Sweet, Roasted, Balanced

This peculiar green tea is a historic combination born out of necessity yet it still remains a popular blend. Organic Japanese green tea leaves are blended with toasted and puffed brown rice which creates a savory-sweet, roasted aroma with hints of seaweed. Each cup produces a balanced green and grainy flavor followed by a toasted, soft sweetness that lingers.

Savoring the Experience:

When preparing this exceptional brew, be sure to pour the hot water over the leaves to unleash all the aromas the tea has to offer. It can be paired with just about anything but we recommend some finger snacks of crunchy rice cakes.

Fun Facts:

This unique blend of tea was built by the working-class citizens of Japan who needed a cost-effective way to enjoy tea. They simply added to their green tea some toasted brown rice, which was ubiquitous and inexpensive at the time, creating a filler ingredient that would extend their tea supply. What became an instant hit in Japan is now enjoyed by people all over the world.
