Genmaicha is a mellow blend of roasted and puffed brown rice grains and Sencha.
Our Genmaicha is a wonderful blend of Sencha and puffed brown. Due to the rice, this tea has the rich and hearty flavour of roasted grains of coffee but the freshness of Sencha.
In many cases Genmaicha is made from a mix of puffed rice and low grade Sencha, low grade Nibancha (tea from the second harvest of the year) or Sanbancha (tea from the third harvest of the year). Our Genmaicha is made from only Ichibancha (tea from the first harvest of the year).
We believe the taste and aroma of our premium Japanese Genmaicha is much more flavourful and smooth than any other Genmaicha on the market.
