Top grade Japanese green loose leaf tea with toasted brown rice.

This Genmaicha is rather special and unusual, as we use a superior Sencha and combine it with organic Japanese toasted brown rice.

Traditionally Genmaicha was made with old, inferior or lower grade sencha and the toasted rice was used as filler to disguise the inferior quality.  We don't do that.

The sencha is crafted by Moriuchi san - one of the most revered tea-masters in Japan.  His 200 year old tea-garden in Shizuoka is still family run, alongside his wife and daughter.

Best Genmaicha!

I’ve tried genmaichas from many different tea brands/companies and this one is by far superior to the rest. If you’re a genmaicha fan, this won’t disappoint.

Beautiful tea

The first infusion is all about the toasted rice, full-bodied, generous to the palate and filling. Second infusion is when the tea makes more of an appearance and is slightly acidic but rounded out by the rice. Third infusion is a dance between the two ingredients, a beautiful balance of flavor that sits wonderfully on the tongue. I recommend this tea to anyone who loves strong black coffee. I’ve tried many genmaicha teas and this one is just lovely, with little to no fishy notes. Stocking up on this one.

Something Fun To try

This was the first tea of its kind that I have tasted. I enjoyed the flavor of the popcorn and rice, however for me it overpowered the flavor of the green tea on the first and second infusion. The sweet spot was the 3rd infusion where more of the gentle undertones of the green tea was able to shine.

This is my favorite tea. I have tried many other brands but this one is the most satisfying!

Tasting Notes

The sencha base is remarkably complex and deep with rich, verdant notes. A deep, comforting finish with the aroma of popcorn.


Use 0.07oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water (2g per 150ml).


For the optimum infusion use 158¬įF (70¬įC) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

26¬Ę per cup based on 0.07oz of leaf per 5.1fl oz of water and 2 infusions.

Origin & Craft

Located between Uchimaki and Miwa Village in Shizuoka, the Moriuchi Tea Garden has been around since the Edo period. The tea is grown and harvested by husband and wife Yoshio and Masumi Moriuchi.

The gardens are steep and rich, surrounded by forests. Indeed so precipitous is the incline Mr Moriuchi has built a small monorail to lift them up, and the tea down, from the steepest slopes. They have converted the land to organic farming and our senchas are hand picked and handcrafted.
