A different sort of Japanese tea that many find intriguing. Rice kernels are added while the green leaves are being dried, so the kernels get crispy and some burst open. The genmaicha has a unique appearance and a pleasant roasted flavor. Dry Leaves: Broad yellow-green Bancha tea leaves are mixed with toasted brown rice. Liquor: The liquor is vibrant light green tinged slightly khaki brown from the rice. Aroma: The predominant aroma is the roasted brown rice with light vegetal undernotes and hints of citrus from the Bancha. Caffeine Level: Caffeinated Body: Genmiacha is a light-bodied green tea. Flavors: Above a baseline vegetal flavor of spring grass, there is the strong roasted flavor from the toasted rice. It is evocative of popcorn. Brewing Time: 1 to 2 minutes Brewing Temperature: 160° F
