Genmaicha is a traditional, popular Japanese green tea. It is also known as 'Brown Rice Tea', as it is a blend of 'Steamed Green Tea' and toasted rice.
A special varietal of rice known as 'Mochi-Gome' is used in making Genmaicha. Upon roasting, (this varietal) develops a deep golden color and toasted. It sometimes 'pops' into white kernels similar to popcorn.
High quality in Genmaicha is judged by the quality and grade of green tea leaves (high grades are made with select Sencha leaf) and with organic toasted rice. Both must be blended in proportions that provide a balanced flavor.
Earthy, nutty aroma with a smooth, mild savory taste.
Genmaicha pairs especially well with breakfast breads, rice desserts and fruit pastries.
Brew one level teaspoon of leaf in eight ounces pure, spring or filtered water at 180F for four minutes. Leaf can be reinfused two times.
100% organic green tea leaves, 100% organic toasted rice.
