Organic Genmaicha

A lovely balance of fresh green tea with toasty notes of roasted rice.

Special Offer: Save 25% - 50g was £6.50, now £4.88

A tasty satisfying tea created by a glorious balance of fresh green tea and toasted rice. Originally created in Japan to make the tea leaves stretch a little further, Genmaicha is admired for its unique taste, green tea notes mingling with nutty rice, which is baked with the leaves. Processed in a Kyoto factory which supports independent growers by using only their leaves and working with them to produce the best teas they can.

Also called 'Popcorn Tea' due to the flavour of the toasted rice, which adds a full-bodied nutty note.

Have enjoyed this tea on several visits to Japanese restaurants and wanted to continue enjoying it at home. This tea is perfect in every way and love it's nutty flavour and clean taste.

My first taste of Genmaicha and certainly not my last. Nice aroma and flavor. Unlike straight green teas that are best taken outside of meal times, this is an any time drink. i also like the fact that it is organic.

This is my first Genmaicha ,and it certainly lives up to the previous reviews. A tea to drink at any time of the day; pleasant aroma and a pleasing taste. Highly recommended!

Outstanding

I've had a few different genmaicha teas and this is far and away the best, and at a fantastic price. The leaves are large unbroken, there is plenty of rice and the flavour is smooth, nutty and sweet. Perfect; reminds me of why I got into tea in the first place.

Tasty tea

This is one of my new favourites, I love the popcorn after taste and quick brewing time. This tea also smells great and feels like a snack and a drink in one. I love sitting down with this tasty tea when it's cold and wet outside.

A lovely light tea

This tea is really refreshing, with a light sweet taste and no bitterness at all. I always feel better after drinking a cup and my 9 year old loves the popcorn-y flavour!

This is one of the tastiest, most satisfying genmaicha I've ever tasted. Super sweet nutty flavour, and utterly satisfying.Plus it arrived in a cool, handy and very posh ziploc bag, only four days after I placed the order (bearing in mind I'm in Italy). Can't get better than that.

I love this tea. It is so light and refreshing and gives several tasty brews from the same leaves. Popcorn tea is a very descriptive name. Will certainly buy again.

In the past Genmaicha was really only drunk by the poor, who added the puffed rice to their tea to bulk it out as they could not afford pure green tea; however these days it is enjoyed by all echelons of society in Japan and increasingly throughout the world.
