Tasting Notes: toasty, nutty, savory, vegetal

Description: Genmaicha is a Japanese savory green tea blended with toasted brown rice. Notes of nut, toast, steamed vegetables, and grass emerge with each sip. A comforting green tea that's low in caffeine. Genmaicha pairs well with food and is common to sip in many Japanese restaurants.

Genmaicha can be found in two different grades: lower grade or premium grade. Premium grade genmaicha uses the higher grade sencha as the base green tea, while lower grade genmaicha uses bancha as the green tea.

Premium grade genmaicha is more flavorful, more brothy, and more grassy due to the use of a higher grade base tea. We only offer the higher grade premium genmaicha in our tea collection.

Ingredients: blend of sencha green tea + toasted brown rice from Japan
