Gen Mai Cha Tea

Japanese green tea with toasted rice. Sounds odd, works well. A traditional Japanese recipe combining toasted and partially puffed rice grains with green tea leaves, to produce a tea with a distinctive, sweet and nutty taste.

Taste Notes : Toasted Loveliness
Origin : Japan

Ingredients : Japan green tea, wholemeal puffed rice

Brewing :  Brewing the best cup. One teaspoon per cup. Boiling water is too fierce for green teas. So, for just-off the boil water, simply boil the kettle, let it sit for three to four minutes, then brew your tea, 2+ mins, sweeten to taste, no milk.

Details : Genmaicha ("brown rice tea") is the Japanese name for green tea combined with roasted brown rice. Japan, a country with an ancient tea tradition, only produces green tea, much of which is consumed internally. Japanese green tea boasts a distinctive fresh, green character and appearance. Japanese Green tea is processed differently than the Chinese green teas -- after plucked, it is steamed to neutralize oxidation versus pan-fired.

Out of the ordinary

A nice balance between the green tea and roasted rice components. A bit savoury in character. Good value.

Japanese tea. Lovely!

One of the best Japanese teas I have ever had. Lovely nutty texture from the corn, very refreshing and well flavoured.

Excellent tea

We come back to this tea for each order. Quite different from anything else with the toasty flavour. Like liquid popcorn

My favourite!

I was pleasantly surprised to find this tea listed here, as it's not the most common - really lovely toasty flavour, helpful instructions on the packet about water temperature etc, and deliveries always come super quickly! Thank you :D

A nice roasted rice flavour, and the green tea is not too bitter.
