Genmai Cha also written Genmaicha, means natural rice tea.
This very special tea is made blending Bancha leaves with toasted brown rice.
This infusion offers a golden hay coloured cup with light roasted caramel notes with subtle underlying nutty tones.
Genmai Cha’s origins are as a poor peoples tea in Japan. The price was reduced by adding rice to the Bancha which deprecated the value.
Today this tea is enjoyed by all segments of society.
