Easy to prepare and comforting, genmaicha is one of the most popular kinds of green tea around the world. This premium organic genmaicha combines organic sencha leaves and toasted organic rice kernels. Its leaves are plucked in May, contributing to its quality and flavor.
The rice kernels of MASAMI premium organic genmaicha are toasted and puffed, but this tea doesn’t include “popped” kernels, a sign of its exceptional quality. From the moment you open the bag, its warm and toasted rice aroma will make your mouth water. After a quick and easy steeping (using boiling water), you will enjoy its nutty and toasty flavor. This tea is the perfect meal companion but with its very low levels of caffeine, it will warm and comfort you anytime during the day.
For coffee lovers, with its roasted flavor, genmaicha is also an excellent way to ease into the world of green tea. You can steep this tea several times if your first brew doesn’t last more than sixty seconds.
