Taste notes

This organic genmaicha is a simple blend of organic bancha green tea leaves and roasted organic rice. We carefully selected these leaves for their light, astringent flavor, and adjusted the balance of roasted rice to make a harmonious blend. You can enjoy sipping this tea lightheartedly throughout the day and with meals.

Ippodo's organic selection

Our organic teas are produced in the Kyoto tea production region and are certified organic by the JAS. (The USDA recognizes JAS organic certification as an equivalent standard to USDA organic certification.) We have selected each organic variety to meet Ippodo standards for authentic Japanese green tea flavor, aroma, and color. Additionally, compared to our other tea blends, the weather and other growing factors lead to greater differences in the character of our organic teas every year. Discovering this year's unique characteristics is one of the delights of these teas.

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 grew up in Japanese tea store and I am very picky with my tea selections.
This Genmai-cha is a just like the good Japanese green tea I grew up with.
