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.

My favorite

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.

Small amount of brown rice

When I ordered this Gemmai cha about 4 months ago , I loved it and I decided to re- oder it again. I found out this time , there are not enough brown rice so the taste is like regular green tea. I was so disappointed that I ordered 2 bags of Genmaitea this time.
