Green Tea Genmaicha

Light Light
Nutty Nutty

Green Tea Genmaicha, also known as brown rice tea or popcorn tea, is a traditional Japanese blend. It’s called popcorn tea since some of the brown rice puffs during the roasting process. Genmaicha is also called "people's tea" because the rice serves as a filler - so not a lot of tea is needed to make a brew. Plus, that means the price of tea is reduced. 

What Does Genmaicha Taste Like?

Nowadays, Genmaicha Green Tea has evolved. It has light vegetative flavours with surprising nutty notes. While brown rice was used as a filler before, we now know that it actually adds flavour! That’s how it gets it's signature nutty taste. People from all walks of life actually enjoy Genmaicha tea these days.

Foods that pair particularly well with Genmaicha are salads and rice dishes. As one can expect, Asian-inspired foods go well with it, too. Fattier meals may be offset by the flavours of this brew as well! If you don’t like the somewhat bitter taste tea can have, you can even cold brew your Genmaicha. This can make it taste more mellow.

Green Tea Genmaicha can also be enjoyed with a bit of matcha. Called matcha-iri genmaicha, the flavour is now stronger and its colour now appears greener compared to its usual yellowish hue. You can get both here at Portfolio Coffee!
