Genmai Cha is a classic Japanese green tea, blended with toasted, popped rice. Originally created to stretch short supplies of tea, now enjoyed by tea lovers here and abroad. Warm and nutty taste, with a lovely savory quality. A hearty cup of tea that is easy to combine with food. Genmai Cha is a great solution for those seeking a substantial, but less astringent flavor from their cup.

Green Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 180° for 2-3 minutes.

Fresh From Origin

Puffed rice is made by applying steam and high pressure to rice kernels, similar to how popcorn is made from corn. Popular in many Asian countries, it can be served in spicy, savory, or sweet dishes and is even offered to Hindu gods or goddesses in some regions. In the US, it is more commonly found in cereals like and candy bars. Today, most puffed rice is made using the "gun puffing" method, which was developed by American inventor Alexander P. Anderson, who first showcased his invention at the World's Fair in 1904.

How long have you been growing tea?
I was born and raised in Makihohara region, the Japan's No.1 green tea production area. I have been involved with green tea production for the past 38 years.
What got you started in the Tea industry?
My grandfather started green tea farming and production, and my father took over it and then myself. I am the third generation. Masudaen as a company has been doing green tea business for almost a century now.
Can you describe a typical day out in the field. How many hours would that be?
I walk around the green tea fields at 6AM every morning, and checking green tea bushes. During harvest season, I harvest tea leaves with young staff, and do the processing also. Freshness is the most crucial thing for green tea. So, our factory is moving 24 hours a day during the harvest season. The harvested tea leaves becomes green tea (finished products) the next day.
