Our Organic Genmaicha Tea, a delightful blend of organic Japanese sencha and toasted rice, offers a surprisingly complex smell and taste. Moreover, when it comes to the different types of green teas, understanding the distinction is essential. To create our organic genmaicha tea, producers expertly combine fresh steamed sencha leaves with roasted rice grains. Sencha leaves, derived from tea bushes known as Camellia Sinensis, impart a distinct seaweed flavoring and a vibrant green color. The delightful combination results in a mildly nutty, flavorful, and aromatic blend that is sure to captivate your taste buds!
Furthermore, it’s worth noting that our particular blend of Organic Genmaicha is sourced from the foothills of Mount Fuji.
Now, let’s explore the flavor profile of this exceptional tea:
Genmaicha, a Japanese green tea, undergoes a unique fermentation process. Unlike traditional green teas that are typically steamed, this tea, made from the same leaves as matcha, is fermented in a water bath for up to three days. Consequently, it boasts a sweet, nutty taste and is rich in antioxidants and antifungal properties. The toasted rice in the blend adds a warm, full-bodied flavor owing to its sugar and starch content.
What sets genmaicha apart is its low caffeine content, making it an ideal choice for enjoying throughout the day.
Fun Facts about Organic Genmaicha Tea:

- Genmaicha is nicknamed “popcorn tea” because a few grains of the rice pop during the roasting process and resemble mini popcorn.
