The Genmaicha from Yakushima is made from a very fine bancha mixed with toasted rice to add a roasted cereal note to the gentle sweetness of the tea leaves. Genmaicha is the most popular variety of blended tea in Japan, and is becoming increasingly popular worldwide. What originated as a way to make green tea last longer has become a widely popular tea in its own right.
People who like nice roasted flavors will really appreciate this tea. There is a nice balance between the green tea and the toasted rice, so neither flavor completely takes over. This is the perfect tea to enjoy on a brisk morning, and may remind you of a nice warm bowl of hot cereal.
