This unique green tea is very popular in Japan. It is comprised of Sencha green tea leaves mixed with roasted brown rice. Genmaicha is sometimes referred to as “popcorn tea” because some of the brown rice pops to resemble popcorn. Traditionally, the brown rice was used as a filler to help reduce the price of the tea, thus Genmaicha is also known as “people’s tea” because it was meant to be affordable to everyone.
Currently we are offering a high grade of Chinese Genmaicha.
This tea is sold loose leaf, meaning it will not arrive packed in tea bags.
