Genmaicha Matcha is a Japanese green tea blended with roasted brown rice and topped off with Matcha powder. Robust with hearty nutty and toasty flavors.
Genmaicha, also known as roasted brown rice tea or "popcorn tea' because grains of the rice pop during the roasting process and closely resemble popcorn. Originally created by the lower class Japanese, who utilized the rice to create a filler and depreciated the cost of tea.
Genmaicha Matcha is a green tea that uses smooth and rich Sencha tea leaves as the base to combine with the nutty and toasty notes of roasted brown rice. Then as it is topped off with culinary grade Matcha, the combination is a dark greenish hue that delivers robust grassy flavors with the aromas of roasted rice. This combination is gaining popularity and is a great tea after lunch that not only settles and aids digestion, but will give you the much needed caffeine boost to power through the second half of the day with mental clarity and cognitive function from the Matcha powder.
