Genmaicha is truly unique, and an excellent palate cleanser. It's flavor is light, with a mild nut taste. The steamed Sencha is blended with roasted rice kernels that evoke feelings of popped corn. This blend originated in Japan and is one of the country's most popular drinks. Rumor has it it gets its name from a samurai warrior but you won't have to be that daring to enjoy this pearl of the orient. It's grown organically with no pesticides or chemical fertilizers in its production.
