GREEN • TOASTED RICE • MILD

Genmai Cha is sometimes referred to as “popcorn tea” because a few grains of the rice pop during the roasting process that resemble popcorn. A staple tea in Japan, our Genmai Cha is blended with traditional style toasted and puffed rice. Adding puffed rice to traditional sencha results in a softer, sweeter green tea with pleasant toasty notes. There are several legends explaining the origins of Genmaicha, including that it was a ‘peasant’s tea’ made to prolong limited quantities of tea leaves, or that monks added tea to their food bowls to capture the last grains of rice.
