Genmaicha means natural rice. This specialty is made from Bancha tea, to which approximately 50 % roasted rice grains have been added. The incomparable taste is characterized by the mildness of the Bancha tea. It is ideally complimented by the pleasant, slightly sweet, and nutty caramel note. Thanks to the low caffeine content and the fine mildness, this tea can be consumed all day long. Also, green tea beginners can make this their first positive experience as it gives a rich umami mouth-feel. The Japanese prefer this tea for the afternoon hours.
