Genmaicha is a popular Japanese tea made by blending green tea leaves with roasted rice. Good for sipping at any time, and especially with meals.
Gokujo Genmaicha is Ippodo’s blend of genmaicha—green tea mixed with roasted rice. It has a perfect balance of pleasant roasted rice aroma and classic green tea astringency.
One of the more popular banchas, genmaicha is a mixture of yanagi (large plain green tea leaves) and roasted rice. The rice is roasted at two different levels: lightly roasted and deeply roasted until the rice grains puff. The result is a unique savory flavor and a strong popcorn-like aroma. The quantity of rice is purposely kept to a minimum while there is an ample amount of leaves with a light bitterness. This provides a perfect balance between the roasted aroma and the refreshing aftertaste of the yanagi.
Genmaicha goes well with meals and is tasty as an everyday tea.

I was drinking genmaicha since I was kid. Many many years ^ ^ I was so happy I found website, coz I couldn't get it from Japan because of Covid....
This is my favorite tea. It smells great, it's refreshing and super calming. It's a bit of a lighter flavor than hojicha but stronger then sencha. Its a perfect inbetween imo.
Good but need a lot of tea leaves!
