Japanese organic green bancha mixed with hulled rice and popped corn to create a golden color and nutty flavor. Very slight caffeine.
This unique steamed Japanese green Bancha is mixed with hulled rice kernels, giving it a rich nutty flavor. Considered by some as a "snack" tea, as it satisfies the urge to nosh without any calories. Like other green teas, this one is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Originally, genmaicha tea was made by peasants who added rice to extend the infusion.
Today, in a reversal of fortune, genmaicha is enjoying a surge in popularity, especially at chic Japanese Tea Houses, where it is all the rage.
