Regular price $14.00 $14.00 Sale

Genmaicha is a widely popular Japanese Green Tea made by blending roasted and puffed brown rice with Sencha leaves. 

A characteristic flavour of Genmaicha is its smooth, hearty roasted flavour, enjoyed by Japanese people for centuries.

Genmaicha is often blended with low-grade Sencha from the second or third harvest of the season. We pride in blending our Genmaicha using only high-quality Sencha tea leaves picked during the first flush of the Spring season (Ichiban Cha).

Flavour profileSmooth and nutty, with a well balanced grassy/roasted flavour and a mild coffee-like aroma.

Origin: Uji, Kyoto (Japan)

Hot Genmaicha Tea:

    1. Place 5g of leaves into a Kyusu (teapot)
    2. Pour 200ml of 80°C water
    3. Infuse for 90 sec.
    4. Repeat 2-3 times. Adjust brewing parameters according to taste.
    Note: If brewed for multiple guests pour tea little by little in each cup to evenly distribute the flavour. Most of the flavour will be collected at the bottom of the teapot, so the initial pour will be lighter and become stronger towards the end of the pour.

      Cold Brew Genmaicha:

      1. Place 4-5g of leaves into a large Kyusu or glass bottle.
      2. Pour 500ml of cool water (room temperature or refrigerated water) into the teapot or glass bottle
      3. Place teapot or glass bottle in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours.
      4. Gently shake the brewing vessel before pouring the tea into the cup/glass.

      Flash Chilled Genmaicha:

      1. Place 4-5g of leaves into a Kyusu (teapot)
      2. Pour 200ml of 80°C water
      3. Infuse for 3 minutes (in this case the infusion time is longer to increase its flavour, as the hot tea will be then poured over ice and be diluted)
      4. Pour hot tea from the Kyusu into a glass/cup filled with ice cubes (alternating the pour if brewed for multiple guests).

      Iced Brew Genmaicha:

        1. Place 4-5g of leaves into a Kyusu (teapot)
        2. Fill up the Kyusu with ice cubes
        3. Let ice thaw at room temperature
        4. When the ice is fully thawed, pour into teacups (alternating the pour if brewed for multiple guests).
