Genmaicha (Organic): A Hearty, Warming Japanese Tradition

Genmaicha, sometimes called “popcorn tea,” is a unique green tea brewed from tea leaves blended together with toasted rice. Japanese households mixed toasted rice with tea was as a way to extend their tea supply until the following spring. The tea quickly became a favorite across Japan due to its delicate sweetness and hearty flavor.

Our version of this tea uses high-quality Bancha and premium Japanese short-grain rice. The balanced marriage of green tea and rice make this tea an ideal beverage for a macrobiotic diet. It’s flavorful, refreshing, and has a subtle sweetness. Japanese households typically enjoy this tea in the afternoon.

  • Uji, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan
  • Toasty, mealy, slightly sweet and nutty caremel notes that the toasted pieces contribute. The taste is bright, with a grassy edge.

    Love this tea, I feel like it is the prefect tea for going into winter. Very earthy and warm. It just made me feel better!

    I have loved Genmaicha since my first sip many years ago. The toasted rice gives the tea a scrumptious body and aroma. This blend is perfectly balanced and will please any green tea drinker (pro and amateur alike); its being organic is an added bonus. And what could be more fun than the surprise of tiny popcorn kernels and toasted rice in your tea!
