China Genmaicha Organic Green Tea
China Genmaicha Organic Green Tea ~ 玄米茶, "brown rice tea"
China Genmaicha Organic Green Tea. Genmaicha tea is a combination of Bancha green tea and roasted puffed rice. Rice was originally added to tea as a filler for the poorer members of society, but has become a popular tea in its own right due to the mild flavour combination of light, grassy green tea and roasted puffed rice. Low in caffeine and high in flavonoids, genmaicha is a healthier alternative to coffee and other teas.
Classic Japanese style Green Bancha with puffed rice and a mild maize taste. Long, pressed leaf.
Brewing time: 1 to 2 min.
