 Genmai Cha

A traditional blend of roasted rice grains with fine Japan green tea. Toasty and malty with a smooth, rounded body and satisfying aroma.

One of Japan's most unique teas, Genmai Cha means "roasted rice tea." This blend originated with Japanese peasants who would stretch their precious supply of tea by blending it with roasted rice, in an era when tea was still a barely affordable luxury.Over time, the toasty, malty yet smooth and refreshing flavor of Genmai Cha developed a following on its own merits, and today it is quite popular internationally.

I never really liked Green Tea before I tried this. This is a big difference from the cheap green tea stuff. It's got a great taste to it, the brown rice adds a lot to it. I take a thermos of it to work every day. Goes perfect with sushi too.

I don't think I could ever go back to regular green tea after this.

I first experienced Genmai Cha at a Japanese restaurant. This style of green tea has a warm nutty fullness to it that I fell in love with, and I have never been able to drink "plain" green tea since. We purchase the Shirakiku brand at our local Japanese market. Every morning we prepare it in our french press, and put it in a thermos so that it can be consumed through out the work day. Whenever we go out for sushi, we order Genmai Cha as our beverage. The delicate flavors of the fish are complemented and balanced with this wonderful tea.
