    DESCRIPTION

    Soothing for the mind and the stomach, Genmaicha is a fragrant combination of grassy Japanese green tea with the nutty aroma of roasted popped rice. Traditional Japanese Genmaicha was invented as a way for poor farmers to stretch their tea as blending popped rice with green tea reduced the amount of tea in each cup. Soon, this habit caught on across the Japanese society, and Genmaicha has since become a hugely popular tea throughout Kyoto and Tokyo
