Japan Genmaicha Green tea is an incredible example of the art of tea, and is a perfect tea for
those new to green tea. It's young leaves are harvested from carefully tended to tea bushes.
Puffs of roasted, hulled rice are then added giving the appearance of popcorn tea . The name
Genmaicha actually translates to brown rice tea. The cup is full bodied and sweet with a
delicious toasty flavor
Legend has it that sometime during the 1400s, a servant named Genmai leaned too far
forward when serving hot tea to his Samurai warlord; the rice snack in Genmai's pocket fell
into the samurai's tea. To their surprise, popping commenced upon the rice falling into the
near boiling tea. Intrigued, the samurai tasted the tea and was overwhelmed with delight! He
then named the tea after Genmai, and he requested that it be served every day thereafter.
