Genmaicha is sometimes known as popcorn green tea because it is mixed with roasted rice!
This premium quality organic genmaicha is a blend of first flush Sencha and brown rice (“genmai”) which has been grown and roasted by a neighbour of the tea farmer.
Because the rice kernels sometimes pop while they are being roasted and make a sound similar to the sound that is made when making popcorn this tea is sometimes referred to as “genmaicha popcorn green tea”. The genmai gives the tea is nutty flavour and reduces the caffeine content of the tea by about half, which makes the tea mild on the stomach. Also excellent prepared as iced-tea, Genmaicha is a very nice tea to serve with a meal, or for the afternoon or early evening.
