The delicious savoury roasted aroma and pleasant toasty flavour of Genmaicha are due to the magical marriage of bancha tea, to which approximately 50% roasted and popped brown rice grains have been added. Genmaicha is reputed to have evolved out of necessity, as poor Japanese farmers eked out their precious tea with a commodity that was plentiful – rice. The sugars and starch from the rice gave a sense of fullness, enabling longer working hours between meals, and also provided sustenance for monks whilst fasting.

Comforting, satisfying and super healthy too! Genmaicha makes a light brown tea with a savoury aroma and nutty flavour. Especially satisfying on a rainy or cold day.
