Matcha is a much beloved green tea in Japan, yet it can seem intense to the uninitiated westerner. As an alternative, we suggest Matcha iri Genmaicha, the best of both worlds. The Bancha ("cha") leaves and brown rice ("genmai") that comprise Genmaicha are coated with Matcha green tea powder, and the result is fantastic!

Please brew it for 3 minutes with 175º water. The cooler water makes sure matcha does not get too strong, yet you need 3 minutes to get the nutty flavor from the genmai (brown rice). 

Each HT tin contains 20 tea sachets.
Each sachet brews one 12 oz. cup of tea.
Be sure to recycle your tin, or reuse it and refill it with one of our Bags of 50!

Ingredients: Green tea, brown rice, matcha (powdered green tea).

 Details: Mike's son Emeric popularized this tea for the Harneys years ago. He used to take some of the Matcha Jobetsugi and dust our Genmaicha with it. It became a big hit at our Millerton shop. So we rolled it out, and people have enjoyed it ever since.
 Dry Leaves: Genmaicha is coated with Matcha. This tea is a blend of large Bancha leaves and the brown toasted rice with occasional popped rice dusted with brilliant green tea powder.
 Liquor: The liquor is greener than most teas, except our Matchas.
 Aroma: The predominant aroma is that of the roasted brown rice with vegetal undertones and hints of citrus.
 Flavors: This has become a popular tea. People have loved the flavor of roasted vegetables for time immemorial. When the wonderful vegetal flavors (spinach and artichoke) are added, it becomes irresistible.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied. The matcha gives it body, but the rice makes it a lighter brew, so it ends up in the middle.
 Brewing Time: 3 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 175º
