Genmaicha is the famous Japanese blend of Green Tea and toasted Brown Rice. One story goes that back in the day Tea was a luxury item and toasted rice was abundant and cheap and in an effort to stretch the Tea, toasted rice was added. Another story is about a Samurai and a soon-to-be-beheaded servant named “Genmai” who accidentally dropped some rice in his cup. The Samurai, after the beheading, sat down and drank the Tea and loved it and felt remorse, for a minute or two. I like this story best.  This Tea tastes great and is a good ‘starter’ Tea for those of you just dipping a toe in the Green Tea pool.

    I love the flavor in this tea, it is really nicely balanced. This is one of my favorite green teas now.
