Genmaicha

Genmaicha is a curated blend of Sencha and roasted puffed brown rice. Well loved by the Japanese, it has the rich flavour of roasted grains with the freshness of Sencha. 

Most Genmaicha in the market is made from a mix of puffed rice and low grade Sencha, low grade Nibancha (tea from the second harvest of the year) or Sanbancha (tea from the third harvest of the year). Our Genmaicha is made from only Ichibancha (tea from the first harvest of the year) and is recommended for an everyday tea.

 

Uji produces one of the most expensive tea in Japan and had not been once detected with any radiation residue since the Fukushima earthquake, hence Tea Cottage SG had selected this premium Uji blend for everyone to enjoy.
