Caramel Genmaicha Milk Recipe | Roasted Rice Tea

Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese tea blend made from green tea leaves and roasted brown rice. It is often referred to as "popcorn tea" because during the roasting process, some rice grains pop and resemble popcorn.

The history of Genmaicha emerged due to the proliferation of Tea drinking culture in Japan and the lower social class added Roasted Brown Rice for easy accessibility. Therefore, Genmaicha was also referred as “The People’s Tea”.

Sourced directly from tea farms, we work exclusively with passionate tea farmers that harvest it the way we want you to taste - mellow and vegetal.

Our Genmaicha powder contains traces of Matcha, which gives it extra umami punch! With its low caffeine level, this is also a perfect beverage to enjoy at any time of the day.
