The everyday tea of Japan, Genmaicha is as familiar and comforting as a tea should be. Infuse its toasty warmth and instantly calming properties into your days with this select harvest. Made with fine Sencha leaves from Uji, Kyoto—home of the best Japanese greens—it’s blended with perfectly popped rice for added nutty depth and texture.
The Nishide Tea Factory has been managed by the same family for over 140 years. Currently it is managed by a husband and wife team, Takashi and Atsuko Nishide. The Nishide family buys aracha tea (unrefined leaves) from the tea farms of Kyoto and surrounding prefectures, and refines them further to craft high quality tea leaves that are uniform in color and shape, and of course excellent in flavor.
