Genmaicha was originally created by Zen monks hundreds of years ago, who innovatively mixed green tea with the browned rice stuck to the bottom of their cauldrons. In time, it became a traditional Japanese workers drink, blending roasted rice with sencha or bancha, enabling the tea to become more economically viable. In the modern day, our Genmaicha is a carefully crafted blend, with premium quality sencha green tea sourced from the mountains of Makizono, blended as per tradition with roasted brown rice. The silky green leaves combine with matcha powder to formulate a rich, wholesome Genmaicha, complemented by a toasty aroma and savoury, nutty intonations.
