A Japanese green tea that has a more rustic look after the tea leaves have been toasted over charcoal.
Genmaicha is the Japanese name for a green tea with roasted rice grains. This tea contains brown rice, which gives a nice nutty aftertaste, and popped white rice that makes the tea look nice. It is very popular in Japan and a good tea to enjoy with food. In addition, Genmaicha is very suitable for drinking cold.
This tea is from our producer Hoshino Seicha in Yame, Fukuoka, Japan.
