Tea Story

About the tea
Sourced from Ise Bay in Mie Prefecture, this Japanese speciality tea is made with premium quality Sencha, roasted rice grains and popcorn. In ancient Japan, tea was a luxury commodity. Therefore, the Japanese mixed roasted rice with Sencha green tea and created the blend that is now known as Genmaicha. Today, Genmaicha is a luxurious delicacy tea with a very distinctive and delicious flavour.

The tea has a mild flavour and combines the fresh grassy taste of green tea with the aroma of roasted rice. The combination of elements creates a beautifully balanced tea that plays with your senses of taste, smell and sight.

Our luxury Supreme Genmaicha triune tea bags are the perfect way to enjoy the flavours of fine loose leaf tea but escape the hassle of loose leaf tea making. Our spacious plastic free tea bags give you the perfect infusion, and all of our tea bags are 100% biodegradable.

Ingredients - Japanese green tea, roasted rice and popcorn.

Health benefits
Genmaicha is known for its various health benefits such as increasing metabolism and reducing cholesterol. The tea is rich in the polyphenols ‘catechin’ and ‘gallic acid’. It also includes other antioxidants such as ‘carotenoids’ and ‘ascorbic acid’.

Information for tea connoisseurs
Today, Japanese Genmaicha green tea is consumed in the Western world as a delicacy with an interesting and complex flavour profile. However, in ancient Japan, Genmaicha was actually a peasant’s tea. While the roasted rice and popcorn impart a very beautiful and distinctive flavour to the brewed tea, the original purpose of adding rice was not a culinary innovation but, simply, an attempted to make the green tea last longer. This is why, in Japan, Genmaicha is known as ‘The People’s Tea’.
Genmaicha was also consumed by Buddhist during periods of fasting and by those who did not have regular access to food.
