Green tea from Japan that is the 'snap, crackle, pop' of teas. Genmai Cha is an exotic Japanese recipe that combines popped rice and popcorn with tender and delicate green tea leaves. First used by peasants as a cost-saving measure, our 'Genmai Cha Pop' tea is now equally popular with modern urbanites. Both groups enjoy a refreshing cup that's both sweet and nutty.
Our Genmaicha is a Japanese tea with roasted brown rice in it that really softens that astringent edge, is interesting and gentle, something you can drink every day and not have to worry about. Genmaicha literally means "dark rice tea," dark in this case being applied to rice that hasn't been milled and polished–brown rice. It was invented when tea was gaining broad popularity in Japan, but the price hadn't come down enough for poor farmers to cheerfully toss a tablespoon of leaf in a cup whenever they were thirsty. They cut the tea to stretch out their supplies. This turned out to be really delicious, so now everyone drinks it.
Florida Herb House's premium Genmaicha Tea is made of half Japanese green tea and half roasted brown rice with popped corn also! Our Genmaicha is made with high quality Sencha spring tea leaves. The rice is roasted, which gives it a nutty, toasty scent and a bit of those in the flavor as well. It also makes some of the rice grains pop, and since they look just like popcorn, you’ll sometimes hear genmaicha called popcorn tea.

Genmaicha is a great choice for people who want a low-caffeine tea, since replacing half the tea with rice (a plant that does not produce caffeine) cuts the caffeine content in, well, half. It's often served in restaurants, both in Japan and in American places serving Japanese food, because it's good for the digestion. It is very easy to brew, not turning sharply astringent like other Japanese teas will if you overbrew them. It's just a really friendly tea.
Hot tea brewing method: When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times. The secret is to use water that is about 180'F or 80'C. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup let the tea steep for about 3 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment - do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low - add more water, and so on and so on - until the flavor of the tea is exhausted.
Alternatively as with all top quality teas, scoop 2-4 teaspoons of tea into the teapot, pour in boiling water that has been freshly drawn (previously boiled water has lost most of its oxygen and therefore tends to be flat tasting), steep for 2-4 minutes (to taste), stir (virtually all the leaves will sink -the flowers will float), pour into your cup but do not add milk or sugar since green tea is enjoyed 'straight-up'.
Iced tea-brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.]
