This is not your ordinary genmaicha!
Our genmaicha is blended with roasted brown rice and first-flush tamaryokucha, adding a fun Kyushu twist. It's light and smooth, yet rich in umami. The refreshing cereal notes make this a satisfying cup that pairs great with meals.
With a lower caffeine content, it's a great nightcap as well.
