Green tea + toasted rice = delicious? You don't have to be a math major to know the answer to this one. Yes, our Genmaicha is something special. Read on to find what makes Mizuba's Genmaicha awesome.
Genmaicha is a blend of loose leaf tea, usually bancha, with "genmai." Genmai is commonly brown rice, but our genmaicha is made by roasting white mochi rice, which is crunchier and sweeter than regular rice. The rice provides a satisfyingly sweet, nutty taste, which is balanced by the light green tea. Many say the aroma is reminiscent of popcorn! We say that sounds delicious.
Originally enjoyed in rural areas, genmaicha's complementary flavors became exceptionally popular and it is now one of the most common Japanese teas. Though accessible to all palates, our genmaicha is anything but pedestrian. Feel free to snack on the leftover rice!

I wanted to personally write and let you know that beginning Friday, April 22nd, the price of our Daily Matcha will increase by one dollar, from $20 to $21. This is the first time we have been required to raise the price of tea in our 8.5 year history, and as a thank you for your continued support I wanted to give you a heads up.
