Know your tea: Genmaicha is one of Japan’s most popular teas made by mixing Yanagi Bancha leaves with roasted puffed rice. This Genmaicha yields a brass-yellow liqueur, is low in caffeine, and has a light astringency and a rounded finish. Its nutty aroma reminiscent of roasted pecans, and buttery sweet taste make for a very comforting and wholesome cup of tea. 

Ingredients: Green tea and puffed rice

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes: Roasted pecans, buttery, mochi

Liqueur Body: Brass-yellow, medium bodied.

Preparation

We encourage you to experiment with the amount of leaves, amount and temperature of water, and infusion times to reach your preferred strength of tea,  but here's a suggestion for this particular tea: 

3-5 grams of tea per 120ml of water at 75-80 degrees celicius. Infuse for 30 seconds. Reinfuse up to two times.

Pro Tip: Unlike Chinese teas, Japanese teas should not be rinsed, as the first cup is the most prized one.

Storage Instructions: Green tea is best stored in the refrigerator, in a dark, dry, and airtight container.
