Genmaicha, a specialty Japanese style green tea, is a very unique tea. It has an aroma of toasted popcorn and tastes like lightly buttered popcorn. The tea has a natural sweetness, and some of the fire-toasted rice pops during the firing process. Thus, its nickname of Popcorn Tea. So popcorn lovers beware. You can even eat the popped rice after steeping. It tastes very much like popcorn. As a popcorn lover, myself, I do!
Enjoy a fantastic cup of Genmaicha!

This Japanese tea is once again being grown in Japan. Some of the southern islands were not damaged by the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident. Our suppliers have taken the time to test, test, test the soil before they began growing Japanese teas on a particular island. We are very happy to once again be able to offer some Japanese teas grown in Japan. In the meantime, please be assured the Japanese teas we carry which are not grown in Japan are made to Japanese specifications.
