A famous Japanese green tea that combines steamed green tea leaves with toasted rice for a savoury, nutty and delightful flavour with popcorn notes.
Genmaicha is one of the most unique and distinctive green teas available. Also known as the "People's Tea", Genmaicha was said to be satisfying and filling and so commonly consumed by the poor and those who were hungry or fasting as an appetite suppressant. The addition of toasted rice to green tea leaves also reduced the price of the tea itself, making it more accessible to commoners as well as being delicious and satisfying.
Our Genmaicha is one of the finest versions available using only the finest steamed green tea leaves from Japan and pure toasted rice grains. Some of the grains pop during roasting and resemble popped corn so this tea is also commonly known as "popcorn tea".
The result is this delicious bright golden-yellow infusion with characteristics refreshing green tea flavours and a nutty, savoury, toasted finish and a touch of caramel on the finish.
Place one to two teaspoons per cup into an infuser, filter or teapot. Allow the water to cool after boiling and infuse for 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately or remove leaves to prevent spoiling.
