Also know as Genmaicha, Toasted Rice Green Tea combines flavorful sencha tea leaves with puffed rice, adding a smooth refreshing flavor and eliminating some of the natural bitterness of green teas. The name comes from a Japanese legend of a servant named Genmai, who spilled rice in an important samurai’s tea. When the samurai discovered he enjoyed the taste of the tea, the mixture was named in the servant’s honor.
If you find even high quality green teas to be too tannic, Toasted Rice offers an excellent option – it is our smoothest, most mild flavored green tea. To be enjoyed hot or iced, according to taste and season.
