Genmaicha is a Japanese green tea mixed with popped and toasted brown rice. This light-bodied green tea is made from Bancha, a Japanese green tea that comes from the same plant as Sencha, but is plucked later in the season. The lemony Bancha sweetens the toasted rice provides an additional nutty taste that creates a unique savory flavor. Genmaicha is becoming increasingly popular as a health drink.

Steeping Tips

  • Take care not to poor boiling water over your tea. Boiling water will scorch the tea leaves.
  • Use fresh, cold water. The quality of water will affect the taste of your tea.
  • Use a strainer or infuser basket to steep your tea rather than a tea ball or clamping spoon. This gives room for the whole leaf tea and herbals to expand and fully infuse.
  • Remove the tea from the water after the designated steeping time. Over steeped tea, or stewed tea, will create a bitter tasting brew.
  • For a stronger tasting brew, simply add more tea to your strainer or infuser basket before steeping.
  • Always remove tea leaves from water to prevent the tea from becoming bitter.
