Our Club Gen Mai Cha aka Popcorn tea
This traditional Japanese drink Gen Mai Cha or Popcorn Tea is a Japanese Sencha Green Tea with toasted rice which we've blended cocoa nibs, jasmine blossom and rose petals. It’s a really rich and enjoyable tea enjoyed warm not piping hot. Our distinctive blend has a lovely vegetal green flavour, indicative of Japan's steaming process, and is balanced by the very nutty and buttery flavour imparted by the roasted rice. The combination becomes an earthy tea that is as soothing to the soul with the sweetness and flora of jasmine and rose. Light smooth with sweet nutty undertones.
Genmaicha Tea has numerous health benefits. Our blend is full of antioxidants, green tea lowers blood pressure and is a proven force against hypertension. Genmaicha has an active ingredient called theanine, which communicates with your brain and has a soothing relaxation feeling.
Allow one teaspoon to infuse for 3 minutes. This blend should preferably be enjoyed without milk.
