In the Know

For a tea with humble beginnings, genmaicha (which translates to “brown rice tea”) certainly isn’t humble in quality. Known colloquially as the “People’s Tea”, genmaicha originated in Japan as a substitute tea for people who could not afford green tea. To save money and add flavor, the green tea leaves were mixed with roasted brown rice, making it more affordable. Though originally considered a poor man’s brew, the fact that this tea did not disappear as a popular green tea became a testament to its appeal, and today it is considered a Japanese tradition.

The rice in this blend gives the tea a mild, roasted flavor, which can be an appealing change for those less interested in sweet or herbal teas. It is also often mixed with matcha to create matcha genmaicha, a blend even more potent and flavorful. For tea lovers, this is certainly one brew worth trying.

How to Properly Make the Perfect Cup of Genmaicha

As with all green teas, it is best to use water at a temperature not quite boiling. Suggested temp is 175° - 185° F. If you like a richer cup of this delightful blend, keep your tea bag in your cup.

Review Title: Delicious!

Review by Heatheron March 13, 2021
I actually mix this tea with Matcha, and even though it tastes good alone, it tastes amazing mixed with Matcha! Thumbs up!

Review Title: Excellent!

Review by Michaelon February 21, 2021
I love green tea, and genmaicha is one of my go-to choices. This definitely didn't disappoint, the flavor is excellent. I'll definitely be ordering again.

Review Title: delicious!

Review by Lorion June 15, 2020
The local store that used to carry Genmaicha doesn't have it any more. So I looked online, and found it here. Ordering it was easy, it came right away, and it is very tasty.

Review Title: Genmacha green

Review by debon May 3, 2020
I liked the Genmaicha. Taste wise, however, it is on the green tea side. I prefer more of the roasted and popcorn rice flavor offered by other brands.

Review Title: Genmaicha Tea

Review by Donnaon March 19, 2020
I'd enjoyed this tea in the past. I'd been wanting to find it again, and was delighted it was carried by Buddha Teas. When I pour the hot water over the tea, the fragrance is very soothing and relaxing. I can almost smell the brown rice gently cooking. I love this tea.

Review Title: Warm and roasty

Review by Liaon December 26, 2019
The warm quality the roasted grains give makes this the perfect green tea for winter months.

Review Title: A decent Genmaicha

Review by alacarteon September 9, 2019
My "go to" Genmaicha has been the Choice brand until I stumbled across Buddha Teas in a local market and then ordered this flavor online to see how they compared. Flavor-wise, they are about the same, a bit disappointing considering the difference in price. I will enjoy the rest of this box but I think that Buddha Teas' best products are the root teas and other unusual flavors, worth the premium price.

Review Title: Great

Review by Arleneon May 27, 2019
This tea reminds me of the old days when you went to a Japanese restaurant. Great taste of roasted rice with the green tea. Very nice combo. Highly recommend.

Review Title: good to the last drop

Review by Carolynon February 7, 2016
I am trying to put healthier beverages into my diet. Not only is this a healthy drink, but the toasted rice gives it s wonderful flavor.

Review Title: so good its gone

Review by imsewmakebelieveon January 22, 2015
If you are looking to match the mild toasty flavor of your favorite sushi bar tea, this is it! This is the stuff tea dreams are made of, for real. Not only do I drink this all day but my 10 year old daughters now pack this for lunch and prefer it to all other drinks morning noon and night. Its so good it will be gone in a snap.
