Genmaicha is a mixture of Sencha and roasted brown rice. Nowadays, hulled glutinous rice is generally used for Genmaicha, and we also had used this rice in the past. But one day we received a comment from our customer that “the aroma of the tea is week compared to the one I drank in the past”. So I visited hulled rice producer and tested many types and differently roasted rices, and found deep roasted nonglutinous rice is best for our Fukamushi green tea.
This tea is made from our premium Sencha, and deep roasted nonglutinous rice, well-known as “Koshihikari”, is specially blended.
