This is my first genmaicha and I’m in love! The aroma is nutty and very buttery. I steeped 1 TB for 12 oz of water at 175 degrees for 2 minutes. I find it very savory and very easy to drink. It would go easily with food and I could drink it all day. It leaves a distinct popcorn taste in my mouth. I will absolutely be buying more of this!
Steamed Green Tea (Gen Mai Cha)
A traditional blend, soothing and mellow, made of a vivid-green Bancha leaf, roasted brown rice hulls and bits of popcorn and produced in Japan. Our Genmaicha has a nice crisp, uplifting savory taste. Infusion is cloudy yellow-green and is excellent served hot or cold. It is refreshing at most any time of day and goes very well with light foods.
