This speciality is made from Bancha tea, to which approximately 50 percent roasted or popped rice grains have been added. The incomparable taste is characterized by the mildness of the Bancha tea and is ideally complemented by the pleasant, slightly sweet and nutty, caramel note. Thanks to the low caffeine content and mild character this tea is consumed all day in Japan. In previous eras, it was drunk mainly by the poor population of Japan as the rice content helped to keep the price low. The sugar and starch content also meant it could also be used for fasting and by those who had to go a long time between meals. The infusion is a light yellow and it has a warming character. Genmai means “natural rice.
