Organic Genmaicha

玄米茶

Genmaicha has historically been regarded as rustic tea with a hearty and enjoyable flavour. The Japanese name Genmaicha (literally, brown rice and tea) refers to the addition of rice to a green tea base. This batch of Genmaicha originates in the mountains of west Shizuoka, where the base of spring-picked green tea has been selected from the organic garden of Marusen Isagawa Cooperative, which sits at an altitude of 300-450m, within a wider area known as the ‘organic valley’.

  • Cultivar - Yabukita
  • Picked - Spring
  • Oxidisation level - 0%

Tasting notes

  • What to Look For

    White popped rice kernels floating on toasted brown rice and dark green tea leaves.

  • Aroma

    Warming scents of toasted grains.

  • In the Cup

    A refined yellow-green shade.

  • Taste

    Sweet with barley notes and mellow umami.

    Comfort in a cup!

    Glad to see an organic version of this tea, it's my absolute fav. The warming popcorn taste is so comforting especially for autumn evenings, and you still get that green tea kick. Love it.
