What is Genmaicha?

Genmaicha tea is a Japanese favourite that came about because rice was cheaper than tea, so the tea was bulked up with rice. Today we drink it because of its wonderful toasty taste. It is a full-bodied and sweet green tea with a delightful 'baked' character.

For the best experience, we recommend drinking our Genmaicha green tea from the afternoon onwards.
