"Genmaicha" means natural rice. This specialty is made from Bancha tea, to which approximately 50 % roasted or popped rice grains have been added. The incomparable taste is characterized by the mildness of the Bancha tea and is ideally complemented by the pleasant, slightly sweet and nutty caramel note. Thanks to the low caffeine content and the fine mildness, this tea can be consumed all day long. The Japanese prefer this tea for the afternoon hours.
