Additional Information

A nutty Japanese "popcorn" concoction: steamed loose leaf green tea layered with popped pieces of toasted rice.

Vegan SuitableVegetarian

 
  • Full Description
    When Japanese farmers first tried the trick of adding toasted rice to their tea, they soon realised that the springlike taste of steamed green tea was a surprisingly good match for crispy, roasted flavours. Popped pieces of toasted rice give the appearance of popcorn, and Genmaicha tends to be a hit with anyone fond of the slightly savoury taste the Japanese call “umami”. We'd recommend trying our Genmaicha with a handful of toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds – ideal as a flavoursome energy boost.

NUMEROLOGY

We’ve given our Genmaicha the number 29, a reminder of the year Kellogg’s Rice Krispies first came up with the iconic catchphrase "Snap, Crackle, Pop!"

JAPAN

Tea was first introduced to Japan around the turn of the first millennium, and since then it's become much more than just a drink: chado or "the way of tea" is a fine art for the Japanese that takes a lifetime to master. Today Japan is famous for its lush, verdant green tea, thanks to a process of steaming the leaves.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
