Imperial Gyokuro Genmaicha

In stock: 26

Origin: Japan


Our exceptional top tier Imperial Gyokuro is paired with toasted brown rice resulting in a highly aromatic medium bodied green tea blend. It is a classic Japanese tea favorite! High quality Genmaicha is always made with toasted brown rice, which delivers a sweet, rich flavor; cheaper varieties are usually made with toasted white rice. This aromatic blended tea brings together the refreshing lightness, sweetness and the distinctive taste of roasted rice. This tea has a mild taste of sweet, rich tea with wonderful roasted, toasty rice flavor; it has less caffeine and tastes less astringent than other Japanese teas. We hope you love our luxury Imperial Gyrokuro Genmaicha!

My favourite genmaicha of all the ones I've tried. Great balance between toasty and vegetal.

One of the best Genmaicha I have tried and there were many.
The only Genmaicha that I liked as much as this one, although quite different, was Clearspring organic.
My brewing receipt:
1 heaped table spoon, 78°C, 2min in a double-walled glass.

I tried this when I was not well. It felt soothing and relaxing and had a lightness and freshness to it. I reduce the brown rice as I find that flavour too strong, easily, by jjust overflowing the cup or pot. They float quickly and tumble out.
Sometimes add grated ginger and a bit of honey. ❤️

Aroma is delicate and blossoming, lightly floral and toasty. Bitterness is nicely restrained. But flavor is very spinach and lawn clippings.
