Also referred by 'Poet's Tea" – Matcha Genmaicha is a staple of artisanal Japanese tea and is surprisingly simple: roasted puffed rice and dried sencha leaves, together coated in a premium quality of bright green matcha powder from Uji, Japan.
What is Genmaicha?
'Genmaicha' literally translates to mean 'brown rice' tea, and is remarkably delicious with a natural, crisp sweetness. The traditional origins of genmaicha began as an accessible tea option to all people, as weight-for-weight it was more cost-effective due to the rice content.
Following this humble origin, Matcha Genmaicha quickly became one of the most greatly adored traditional Japanese loose-leaf teas.
Satiating, energizing, and uniquely full in flavor, Matcha Genmaicha is suitable for most every person due to lower caffeine content and is well-tolerated by even the most sensitive stomachs.
From connoisseur to novice tea-drinker, Matcha.com co-founder Dr. Andrew Weil personally selected this Matcha Genmaicha as a Japanese Farm-direct tea that everyone can enjoy.

What makes our Matcha Best
It was pleasing to see growing awareness of matcha in America, but we were dismayed by the low qualities available when visiting cafés, tea shops, and restaurants. So, on our following trips to Japan, we purchased small tins of the quality tea to bring home, along with tea bowls, scoops, and whisks. Soon we were in the habit of drinking a bowl of matcha twice a day! Turning loved ones onto it, and leading a growing audience into giving it a try.
