GENMAICHA 02 | Green Tea + Roasted Rice + Matcha - Zen Wonders Tea

GENMAICHA 02 | Green Tea + Roasted Rice + Matcha

50g bag

Regular price $14.00 $15.00 Sale

Our Genmaicha 02 is a richer and more flavourful variation of our classic Genmaicha 01 blend, due to the addition of a small amount of Matcha that coats the leaves.

The characteristic hearty and roasted flavour of Genmaicha is enriched by the fresh and round flavour of Matcha into this blend, making it a great tea that brews a mellow hot tea and an excellent cold brew.

We pride in blending our Genmaicha+Matcha using only high-quality Sencha and Matcha from leaves picked during the first harvest of the season (Ichiban Cha).

Flavour profile: Rich, smooth and round, with comforting roasted flavours and cereal-like notes.

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).
