The crisp flavor of green tea is interwoven beautifully with the roasted sweetness of roasted brown rice.

vs. Genmai Cha:
The main difference lies in the ratio of brown rice to green tea as well as the process used for the brown rice.
Genmai tends to have a higher ratio of brown rice to add to a more toasty sweet flavor and a very subtle green tea taste. Our Hyunmi Nokcha (Korean Brown Rice Green Tea) has a more even ratio of brown rice to green tea, allowing for the flavors of both to come out more evenly.
In Genmai, the brown rice is popped (many times, they will look like little popcorn). This, again, brings out more of the toasty sweet flavor. In our Hyunmi Nokcha, the brown rice is roasted, which produces more of a deep, roasted flavor.
