Why We Love It: Genmaicha has become a widely loved tea of teahouses, restaurants and community gatherings, often referred to as ‘brown rice tea’ or ‘popcorn tea’. This is a special example of the popular tea, as it is made from high quality, organic spring flush sencha, with locally-grown, organic rice. It’s quality gives it a more rich, savory taste that is unmistakeable, and down right addicting.
Teapot/Infuser: Steep 7 grams in 6 ounces of 180F water for 1 minute. Can re-steep 2-3 times with shorter infusions. Be sure to shake every drop out of each infusion when pouring.
