Genmaicha / Popcorn Tea

Gen-mai-cha, or 'popcorn tea' or 'rice tea', is a classic Japanese blend of high grade sencha green tea from Uji, mixed with toasted brown rice and a sprinkle of popcorn. The toasted rice gives the tea a unique mellow, nutty flavour. The sencha here is higher grade than commonly used in genmaicha - the renowned producer awarded best sencha award in Japan many times and producer to Japan's Imperial Court since 1645.

This tea popular in Japan in afternoons, as it is lower in caffeine.
