Popcorn Tea - Gen Mai Cha

Gen Mai Cha is a blend of sencha green tea with toasted rice.  It is also known as "popcorn tea" due to both the popcorn aroma and that some of the rice kernels pop to resemble mini popcorn.

When brewed it has a pale green coloured infusion, and the taste is a wonderfully balanced mix of the strong grassy Sencha and the toasted flavour of the rice.

There are a number of myths as to the first origins of this traditional Japanese tea.  One is that monks used their rice pot with rice stuck to the bottom to their make tea.  Another is simply that it is "people's tea" as rice is much cheaper than tea, the rice was added as a filler to make the tea go further and last longer.  Whatever the origin it is still popular throughout Japan and now the rest of the world, and now a renowned tea in its own right.
