TYPE: Green, Flavored
DESCRIPTION: Known nowadays as the "popcorn" tea, Genmaicha ("brown rice tea") was originally known as "the people's tea," due to poor peasants mixing their green tea with brown rice for filler in order to extend their stock.
Unlike usual green teas, Genmaicha is recommended to be brewed at boiling water temperature (212 degrees) for 30 seconds, though the "normal" green tea temperature also works.
This tea is dedicated to Crystal Lynn Harry (1989-2012), who introduced the owner of this tea business to the beautiful world of tea back in 2006. Without her, none of this would have been possible.
