Genmaicha, a renowned Japanese green tea, presents a captivating fusion of steamed green tea leaves and toasted rice, culminating in a savoury, nutty, and delightful flavour profile accentuated by subtle popcorn notes.

Widely known as the "People's Tea," Genmaicha earned its moniker due to its reputation as a satisfying and filling beverage. It was often consumed by the less privileged or those fasting as an appetite suppressant. The inclusion of toasted rice in the green tea blend not only added a unique flavour dimension but also made the tea more affordable, catering to a broader audience.

Our Genmaicha stands out as one of the finest renditions available, crafted meticulously with premium steamed green tea leaves sourced from Japan and pure toasted rice grains. During the roasting process, some rice grains pop, resembling popped corn, hence earning the tea its alternate name, "popcorn tea."

The result is a radiant golden-yellow infusion brimming with refreshing green tea flavours, complemented by a nutty, savoury essence and a hint of caramel on the finish. With each sip, Genmaicha offers a harmonious blend of tastes and textures, making it a beloved choice among tea enthusiasts seeking a truly satisfying and flavourful experience.

About Genmaicha

Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese green tea that is known for its unique flavor profile, combining green tea leaves with roasted brown rice kernels. This tea has a distinct and toasty taste, making it a popular and comforting choice.

It is made using bancha, a type of Japanese green tea. Bancha is a late-harvest green tea that is known for its milder flavour compared to other green teas like sencha.

The defining characteristic of Genmaicha is the addition of roasted brown rice. The rice kernels are roasted to a light brown colour, imparting a nutty and toasty flavour to the tea. Sometimes, popped rice is also used, giving the tea a popcorn-like aroma.

The combination of green tea and roasted brown rice creates a unique flavour profile. Genmaicha has a mild, grassy taste from the green tea, complemented by the nutty, toasty notes from the roasted rice. The result is a well-balanced and comforting cup of tea.

Genmaicha has a distinctive aroma characterized by the roasted scent of the brown rice. The fragrance is warm and inviting, contributing to the overall sensory experience.

Bancha, the green tea base used in Genmaicha, has lower caffeine levels compared to other green teas. This makes Genmaicha a suitable choice for those who are looking for a tea with a moderate caffeine content.

This blend is versatile and can be enjoyed throughout the day. Its approachable flavour profile makes it suitable for both experienced tea drinkers and those new to green tea. It pairs well with a variety of foods and is often served with meals in Japan.

Genmaicha is commonly served hot, but it can also be enjoyed iced. It is often served plain, but some people add a touch of sweetener or enjoy it with a slice of citrus, such as a lemon wedge.

Genmaicha has a long history in Japan and is a popular everyday tea. Its origins are said to trace back to times when tea was a luxury, and adding rice helped to make it more accessible to a broader population.
