Gryphon Genmaicha Loose Leaf Tea 250g

A Classic Ode to Japan

A tea that leaves your palette bub¬≠bling with a scin¬≠til¬≠lat¬≠ing mix of sen¬≠sa¬≠tions, Gryphon Gen¬≠maicha helps you ease gra¬≠cious¬≠ly into the day. It unleash¬≠es a well-spring of clas¬≠sic Japan¬≠ese notes, includ¬≠ing chest¬≠nuts and toast¬≠ed sesame in your palette, with the ‚Äč‚Äėpop¬≠corn‚Äô brown rice pop¬≠ping over your tongue. The pop¬≠ping brown rice was once used as a filler for the poor man‚Äôs tea. But in Gryphon Gen¬≠maicha, it is used to add a pre¬≠mi¬≠um twist and nut¬≠ty under¬≠tones to the reg¬≠u¬≠lar tea experience.

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

The tea‚Äôs light yel¬≠low hue is a treat for the eyes, accom¬≠pa¬≠nied by the enchant¬≠i¬≠ng aro¬≠ma of the roast¬≠ed rice. Gryphon Gen¬≠maicha deliv¬≠ers a smooth mix of fresh nut¬≠ty and grassy notes with the roast¬≠ed rice fla¬≠vor tam¬≠per¬≠ing its bitterness.


Gryphon Gen¬≠maicha com¬≠bines roast¬≠ed rice or gen¬≠mai with green tea in opti¬≠mal pro¬≠por¬≠tions. To get it right in your first try, brew it in hot water at about 80‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČ85 ¬įC for 3‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČ4 min¬≠utes, depend¬≠ing on how loose you want the fla¬≠vor to be. You can also com¬≠bine this rich tea with oth¬≠er drinks of your choos¬≠ing like hojicha and matcha.

An Acci­den­tal Discovery

Genmaicha‚Äôs ori¬≠gin is still dis¬≠put¬≠ed, but one of the most pop¬≠u¬≠lar nar¬≠ra¬≠tives is that a man in Kyoto once want¬≠ed to dis¬≠pose of his unde¬≠sir¬≠able Kaga¬≠mi mochi (a mochi rice cake used for Japan¬≠ese New Year cel¬≠e¬≠bra¬≠tions), but didn‚Äôt want it to go to waste, so he saved some pieces and drank them with green tea. The tea has always been pop¬≠u¬≠lar thanks to its health ben¬≠e¬≠fits, which include quick nour¬≠ish¬≠ment dur¬≠ing fasts, anti-oxi¬≠da¬≠tion, detox¬≠i¬≠fi¬≠ca¬≠tion, nor¬≠mal¬≠iza¬≠tion of blood pres¬≠sure, and can¬≠cer prevention.
