STORY BEHIND THE TEA

This Genmaicha from Ippodo is a little bit different than what you normally get when buying similar teas in Japan. It has a larger amount of tea in it giving the liquor more body, sweetness and depth. You can also find some popped grains of rice in the mix. A soothing everyday tea.

Genmaicha goes well with meals. It is also a good choice for ochazuke (tea poured over rice accompanied by Japanese pickled vegetables).

About Genmaicha:
Genmaicha is one of the most popular Japanese teas. Not being able to afford high quality teas, the common people of feudal Japan used 玄米/genmai/brown rice to both stretch and enrich the flavor of their tea. It could be argued that through this history the roasty aroma of the rice became part of the Japanese DNA and it remained sought after even after other types of green tea became affordable.
