  • Gen mai Cha is a classic Japanese green tea, blended with toasted, popped rice. Originally created to stretch short supplies of tea, now enjoyed by tea lovers here and abroad.
  • Gen Mai Cha Green Tea

    Cup Characteristics:  Warm and nutty taste, with a lovely savory quality.

    Infusions: Bright, light colored cup.

    Ingredients:  Green tea, toasted rice, popped corn

    This traditional, uniquely robust, Japanese green tea is flavorful with a bit of a savory, roasted note. Made with a combination of larger leaf Japanese green teas and stems and hulled rice kernels the greenish, brown soup has an almost buttery tone.
  • Hot Tea Method:  Bring freshly drawn cold water to less than boil(180-183 degrees). Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 2-4 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’
    Iced Tea Method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly less than boiled(180-183 degrees) water over the tea. Steep for 2-4 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
