Japanese Genmaicha Tea
Selected from a family owned farm in Kyoto, Japan. This is a uniquely refreshing, nutty and pleasantly mild aromatic tea, Japanese genmaicha is a real beauty. This tea is made from Japanese green tea with roasted brown rice kernels releasing a lightly roasted aroma. It is very popular in Japan, suitable for daily use with the least amount of caffeine in any of the green teas.
In the infusion, the roasted rice has a warming, calming effect on the body and is particularly beneficial for the stomach and digestion. It is a perfect tea after eating.
During the manufacturing process, the rice may pop like a popcorn. You may find these "burst" brown rice kernels in the product as well. This is why genmaicha is sometimes called the "popcorn tea".

Depending on your strength preference, you may want to increase the steeping time. Use lower temperature for less astringency. Cold steeping creates a light and refreshing tea.
