A lovely pale-yellow cup with toasty notes & a slightly nutty taste.
With humble beginnings as “the people’s tea,” Genmaicha means “brown rice tea,” as it is composed of Sencha combined with roasted and occasionally popped brown rice (genmai). This delightful detail earned this tea its other nickname, “popcorn tea.” The rice adds a slightly nutty taste to the creamy cereal notes of this mild cup. The drink of the common man is now fashionable for all classes to enjoy and is one of the most popular Japanese teas worldwide.
