Praising century old heritage, this refined blend is embodied by Sencha Green tea, matcha grain and roasted brown rice. Derived from the mountains of Makizono, the cultivated infusion produces toasted aromatics and nut-like overtones.

Genmaicha is often referred to as "popcorn tea" for the reason that during the process of roasting, some of the accompanying grains of brown rice can surrender to the heat and expand in a "popping" gesture.
Produced by unfermented leaves of the camellia sinensis plant, green tea does not go through the oxidation process as does Oolong and back tea.
Instead, heat is applied to the leaves to neutralise the oxidative enzymes before oxidation is able to take effect. The resulting liquor of the infused green tea is typically light and pale in colour, often with a green hue.
How to prepare
Select your brewing vessel and preheat with hot water. Obtain quality water and fill your kettle, setting it to 90°.
Weigh 1.5g of Genmaicha, ensuring you add the leaves first, before following with water.
Upon pouring, set your timer to ensure you steep 1 min 5 secs.
After the timing is finished, separate the infused leaf from the tea liquor by removing the infuser or transferring the tea to a second pot through a strainer.
Your tea should have a strong aroma reflecting it’s flavour. Serve optionally with tray and appropriate teaware.
