Genmaicha is a traditional blend of Japanese smooth bancha green tea and toasted brown rice. We take it up a notch by adding matcha, a powdered Japanese green tea. The resulting infusion is soothing and light, with a brothy quality and vegetal, nutty notes.
Ingredients: Organic Japanese green tea, toasted and popped rice, high grade organic matcha
- 1.5 tsp Per Cup ~ Steep 90 sec
Savoring Your Experience:
Pair this distinctive brew with straight-forward savory dishes like roasted veggies and poached salmon. And of course, it pairs well with sushi!
This lively green tea is made of Bancha (a late-harvest green tea), toasted brown rice and puffed brown rice. Then we dust the Genmaicha with high grade matcha (a powdered green tea) to supercharge it. Genmaicha dates back a few generations, when poor farmers would extend their limited tea supply by blending in rice as a "filler" ingredient. However, the blend became an instant favorite in Japan, and has since spread around the world to delight tea drinkers with its savory-sweet flavor and totally unique appearance.
