Green tea, rice

Genmaicha is a unique Japanese tea blend that combines green tea leaves with puffed roasted brown rice.

What is Genmaicha?

Genmaicha, often referred to as “popcorn tea” due to the popped rice kernels found in the mix, originated in Japan. The term "Genmaicha" translates to "brown rice tea (Genmai meaning brown rice and Cha meaning tea).

Genmaicha can be used in cooking, such as in broths or as a flavouring for rice dishes. It can also be an interesting addition to desserts, providing a unique nutty flavour and texture.

Taste & Aroma

The roasted rice imparts a warm, nutty, slightly sweet flavour that balances the fresh, vegetal notes of the green tea. The green tea adds a subtle bitterness and grassy undertone, creating a well-rounded flavour.

The aroma of Genmaicha is distinctive, combining the scent of roasted grains with the fresh, leafy scent of green tea.

It pairs well with light meals or snacks like sushi, rice dishes and grilled vegetables due to its balanced flavour profile.

Health Benefits

Like other green teas, Genmaicha contains antioxidants, including catechins which help combat free radicals and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

The toasted rice is believed to aid digestion, making this tea a soothing choice after meals.

The addition of rice dilutes the caffeine content compared to other green teas, making it a good option for those who are sensitive to caffeine.

Pack contains 7 tea bags. Keep at room temperature.

Making the tea

Use water that is between 80-85°C. Boiling water can scorch the leaves and make the tea bitter.

Steep for 2-3 minutes. Longer steeping can make the tea too strong and bitter.
