Taste Notes

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.

Genmaicha

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.

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!

Tasty!

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.
