This Japanese classic blend of Genmaicha and Matcha is a comfort food all its own. The toastiness of our sencha and roasted rice genmaicha with our gently grassy, Uji-grown matcha make for a rich and complex vibrant green cup. Warming, relaxing yet energizing, it is the perfect meld of umami and vegetal notes. A gentle introduction to matcha for those who are hesitant, and a welcome addition to our Japanese tea collection.

Ingredients & Lore
blended with genmai cha tea & matcha tea
Unlike the affordable luxury it has become today, historically, tea was a pricey commodity. The Japanese peasants found it difficult to afford much tea, and would mix it with roasted rice, which was abundant and cheap. Thus, they were able to squeeze more cups from the same amount of leaves. A recipe born of poverty, Genmai Cha has acquired an uptown chic and is now a favorite of urban dwellers in Japan and the West.
