From Ippodo

Genmaicha is a popular Japanese tea made by blending green tea leaves with roasted rice. Good for sipping at any time, and especially with meals.

TASTE NOTES
Gokujo Genmaicha is Ippodo’s blend of genmaicha—green tea mixed with roasted rice. It has a perfect balance of pleasant roasted rice aroma and classic green tea astringency.

GENMAICHA
One of the more popular banchas, genmaicha is a mixture of yanagi (large plain green tea leaves) and roasted rice. The rice is roasted at two different levels: lightly roasted and deeply roasted until the rice grains puff. The result is a unique savory flavor and a strong popcorn-like aroma. The quantity of rice is purposely kept to a minimum while there is an ample amount of leaves with a light bitterness. This provides a perfect balance between the roasted aroma and the refreshing aftertaste of the yanagi.

Genmaicha goes well with meals and is tasty as an everyday tea.
