Genmaicha is a green tea blend made with sencha, Japan's most popular tea, and genmai (toasted brown rice). It is well-loved for its playful texture, comforting aroma, and distinct flavor profile, a savory combination of warm, nutty, and umami notes.
Origin: Shizuoka, Japan
Ingredients: green tea, toasted rice
Caffeine level: moderate
The nutty/toasty flavor of the rice kernals is a wonderful complement to the green tea. It's very comforting, and I always find myself going back for more.
