Genmaicha is a different kind of Japanese green tea that many people find intriguing. Brown rice kernels ("genmai") are added while the green Bancha leaves ("cha") are being dried, so the kernels get crispy and some burst open. Genmaicha has a unique appearance and a pleasant roasted flavour.

Ingredients : green tea, toasted brown rice.

 Details: Bancha is a summer tea made after the Sencha season. Because there is so much of this inexpensive tea, an innovative Kyoto tea merchant thought to combine the two staples of the Japanese diet, bringing Genmaicha into existence. Once considered a cheap peasant beverage, Genmaicha has recently come into vogue among the Japanese urban elite.
 Dry Leaves: Broad yellow-green Bancha tea leaves are mixed with toasted brown rice.
 Liquor: The liquor is vibrant light green tinged slightly khaki brown from the rice.
 Aroma: The predominant aroma is the roasted brown rice with light vegetal undernotes and hints of citrus from the Bancha.
 Flavors: Above a baseline vegetal flavor of spring grass, there is the strong roasted flavor from the toasted rice. It is evocative of popcorn.
