Genmaicha Green Tea is an extraordinary Japanese specialty. A blend of high quality Sencha Tea and partially roasted rice produces a unique and original taste. During the roasting of the rice, it is not uncommon for the rice grains to 'pop' not unlike popcorn. The Sencha leaf provides a delicate yet fragrant cup while toasted rice adds body and sweetness to the finish.
Flavor: Toasty, Full flavored with sweet finish
Begin with fresh, bottled or filtered water. Bring the water just to a boil. Place one teaspoon of tea leaves per 8 oz cup of water into a teapot or infuser or place one tea bag directly into a 12 to 16 oz cup. Pour water directly over the tea leaves or tea bag. Note that over-steeped tea will become bitter. For stronger tea add more leaves rather than infusing longer than recommended.
