Light, golden yellow liquor with a unique, toasty rice flavor tending sweet. A tea that creates conversation.
Genmaicha is one of the world's most unique teas- just open the bag and you'll see why. This tea is usually made using Japanese Sencha or Bancha grade teas- ours is a streamed Sencha- and is blended with roasted rice kennels making the tea look as though it has been mixed with popcorn. The flavor of Genmaicha is light, with mild nutty overtones. The tea should be steeped at a slightly higher temperature than most green teas in order to bring out this wonderfully mild flavor.
