Japan Genmaicha Tea is a specialty Japanese green tea (normally a high grade of Japan Sencha) that is blended with fire-toasted rice. The fresh vegetative character of the green tea is imparted on the cup but it is tempered with the bake-like character of the rice. There is a natural sweetness and almost chewy character to the finish of this tea. During the firing of the rice, it is not uncommon for rice to ‘pop’ not unlike popcorn, hence the pet name ‘popcorn-tea. Genmaicha is light, quaffable tea with fresh vegetative character. Light golden yellow liquor with a unique toasty rice flavor tending sweet. In Japan, Genmaicha is enjoyed with everything from sushi to grilled meats to peanut butter sandwiches. A tea that creates conversations.
