Bisou Genmaicha Loose Tea is an excellent version of this style of tea. Genmaicha is a Japanese style of tea, consisting of green tea mixed with roasted popped brown rice. This combination creates a light, golden beverage with a toasty rice flavour that tends to the sweet. It has naturally high antioxidant levels with low levels of caffeine. Like all of Bisou’s teas, it’s 100% organic and it is primarily sourced from the Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan, at an elevation of 800 metres. Ingredients include green tea, and roasted and popped rice. It’s best steeped at a lower temperature, 80C (176F) for 3 minutes. Each beautiful tin holds 100 grams of loose tea. This is definitely a tea that’s good to enjoy with a long visit with good friends.
