Genmaicha translates to "rice tea". The incomparable taste is characterized by the mildness of the Yunagi Bancha tea and is ideally complimented by the pleasant, slightly sweet and nutty caramel note that the toasted rice pieces contribute. Thanks to the mildness, this tea can be consumed all day long. The Japanese prefer this tea for the afternoon hours.

***The joy of green tea! Most of our green tea leaves can be steeped multiple times. When brewing the same leaves for a second, third or even fourth time, increase the steep time by 1-2 minutes.
