Genmaicha - 100g
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 love this tea. I love how it awakens my senses . Never harsh or bitter. Pure clean, and simple and depending on how much tea you use and how long you let it steep - it can be the best way to start your day.
I wake up every morning with my Genmaicha tea and love it! A wonderful tea! Best quality!
This is a perfect tea to drink all day long. Light with great clarity of flavor.
This is a great blend of rice and green tea - in fact, it's the best Genamaicha I've ever tasted! One batch will make three pots of tea! Extra special!
Wonderful taste of the roasted rice - I drink this all the time! It’s also more filling than the other green teas, and I love having this with some sweets on the side.
