Our Review
Bancha is a summer tea made after the Sencha season. Because there is so much of this inexpensive tea, an innovative Kyoto tea merchant thought to combine the the two staples of the Japanese diet, bringing Genmaicha into existance. Once considered a cheap peasant beverage, Genmaicha has recently come into vogue among the Japanese urban elite.
Dry Leaves Broad yellow-green Bancha tea leaves are mixed with toasted brown rice.
Liquor The liquor is vibrant light green tinged slightly khaki brown from the rice.
Aroma The predominant aroma is the roasted brown rice with light vegetal undernotes and hints of citrus from the Bancha.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body Genmiacha is a light-bodied green tea.
Flavors Above a baseline vegetal flavor of spring grass, there is the strong roasted flavor from the toasted rice. It is evocative of popcorn.
Brewing Time 1 to 2 minutes
Brewing Temperature 160° F

Genmaicha - loose 4 oz tin

SKU# 44223

A different sort of Japanese tea that many find intriguing. Rice kernels are added while the green leaves are being dried, so the kernels get crispy and some burst open. The genmaicha has a unique appearance and a pleasant roasted flavor.

Really great
Average Review:

I had genmaicha of unknown origin at a friend's house. I came home and ordered some immediately, haven't been disappointed. I wasn't really into tea, but this tea helped get me there.
