We carry three types of genmaicha with different flavours. Choose one as you please.
Regular Genmaicha is made of sencha tea leaves, which have grown larger than usual (closer to Yanagi and bancha), blended with roasted rice. It's best feature is it's briskness. Being subtle in flavour, the large sencha leaves express a pleasant bitterness and astringency, easily combined with the mild sweet roasted aroma. The tea also has such a light flavour that it is a great thirst quencher and allows you to drink large amounts at a time.
As the name suggests, Kabuse Genmaicha is made by blending roasted rice with kabusecha. It is characterised by a roasted aroma and mellow sweetness. Genmaicha is often brewed with boiling water to bring out a stronger aroma, but we recommend lowering the temperature of the water slightly for this Kabuse Genmaicha to enjoy It's milder taste and sweetness which you will never find in a genmaicha of sencha.
Genmaicha with Macha
Genmaicha with Macha is made by adding a small amount of matcha to the mixture of sencha and roasted rice. The sweetness of matcha and the bitterness and astringency of sencha. Combined with the roasted aroma of the rice, the flavour will render rich in flavour with a mild taste and a bright green colour, which are the characteristics of this tea.
