Product Description

Genmaicha (literally “roasted brown rice tea”) is a 50-50 mix of toasted brown rice kernels and sencha green tea. Genmaicha’s distinctive nutty, slightly-sweet flavor is popular with Japanese people of all ages and from all walks of life. Its low caffeine content (even among other green teas) is a popular selling point. Drink Genmaicha in the morning or the evening for a nice treat!

Both the rice and sencha in Ryu Mei’s Genmaicha is entirely organic, grown without pesticides and far away from industrial pollution. But don’t take our word for it--you can see it for yourself just by looking at our tea! Our rice grains are smooth, as opposed to the fluffy, popcorn-like texture that rice in non-organic genmaicha tends to take on. Ryu Mei guarantees you a quality tea experience with every cup!

Health Benefit

Though known as the “poor man’s tea” or “the people’s tea” in the past, Genmaicha is notable for its absolute bounty of health benefits.

This unusual green tea, blended with kernels of popped brown rice, can boost metabolism and lower stress—and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Like all green teas, Genmaicha is high in antioxidants, which are notorious for their cancer-preventing properties. Antioxidants also serve to detoxify the liver and protect tissue from damage, as well as helping strengthen the immune system. These same antioxidants can also help to promote focus while studying; the perfect aid for students!

Theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, can provide a calming effect, and may disperse stress, without affecting alertness. Combined with its soothing earthy flavor, it’s the perfect drink after a long day.

Genmaicha also has far less caffeine than many of its relatives, making it perfect for anyone with sensitivity to caffeine. Like many other green teas, it also has fat-burning capabilities: the effect can last up to two hours after drinking a cup of tea.

With two to three cups of Genmaicha a day, anyone can be on their way to better health and better moods. Genmaicha today is drunk by everyone--from children to the elderly, east and west.

Brewing Method

Ratio: For each cup of tea (6 oz) use approximately 1 teaspoon of tea (3g).

Temperature: Genmaicha should be steeped in water that’s around 70°C to 80°C (160°F to 180°F). Boiling water will burn the leaves and ruin the flavor.

Steeping: 2 to 3 minutes.

Recommended: Mineral water will provide the best results.

Quality, Aromas, Color, Flavor of Genmaicha depends on the origin of the Sencha, the processing method and the ratio of Sencha:Genmaicha. 

Aromas: It is important to know that the aromas of Genmaicha tea leaves came from the ratio of Sencha and "Genmai" roasted brown rice used in the mixture. This Organic Genmaicha is perfectly mixed to give out the best combination of aromas from Sencha tea leaves and "Genmai". 

Flavor (Taste): Organic Genmaicha has a complex, toasty and nutty flavor. Pleasantly sweet.
