Genmaicha is a tea born out of need and practicality. Japanese farm workers would serve this tea made of sencha stems blended with roasted, popped rice to nourish themselves throughout the day. It is a tea meant to go well with food and also to soothe an empty stomach. Often drunk in the morning, this deliciously savory and fresh green tea is a staple among Japanese households. It is one of our favorite green teas and are very excited to be offering it in the True Tea line up.
