This is one of those teas that you will either love or hate.
Genmaicha (玄米茶) literally means "roasted rice tea", aptly named. The tea has a distinct scent like popped corn and a flavour reminiscent of Rice Crispy treats. Loose-leaf, brewed from boiling water at five minutes, goes well with a small amount of sugar and milk. For some people (indeed everyone else in my family) this tea is too exotic for them. But genmaicha has little caffeine even compared to most other green teas, and the theanine aids concentration for students such as myself.
My one complain (which was purely aesthetic) is that the word "Genmaicha" was misspelt on the tin's label as "Genmiacha". Other than that, I would recommend this tea to anyone with the courage to try it. (Posted on 7/25/2018)

Japanese Genmaicha Green

he finest Japanese Sencha green tea leaves are blended with roasted rice and popped corn to create a robust, nutty flavored green tea. A favorite among Japanese tea drinkers abroad, this unique blend yields an easy drinking cup that lacks the sharp overtones characteristic to teas from this region.

Brewing Tips: Our Genmaicha Green tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a boil and then allowed to cool for 2 minute (160-170° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Genmaicha Green tea should be steeped for 2 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!


How Much Tea Do I Need?
1 pound of loose leaf tea will make approximately 160 cups of brewed tea
8 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 80 cups of brewed tea
4 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 40 cups of brewed tea
