what's special about this tea?

imageTea Taster

This tea has flourished from humble beginnings - Japanese peasants used to mix green tea with toasted rice to make it go further. Now, a celebrated tea in its own right – popcorn tea (or genmaicha tea to use its official name) is a truly unique blend with a wonderfully nutty undertone. Perfect for those who have always longed for savoury sugar puffs!

how does it taste?
Green tea with a popcorny, almost nutty undertone. Best described as “Sugar Puffs in a cup” – truly unique.

In need of a treat. As indulgent as a trip to the movies, but without the violence and naughty language, this sweet green tea will lift your spirits.
Green tea, toasted rice.

Great everyday tea

This has become a stock buy for us - and has overtaken breakfast tea.

Can't get enough! Love love LOVE

Originally I thought this tea might be a little... weird. Boy was I suprised! Not just for sipping with a movie, I have mine for breakfast too!

Nostalgia at its finest

A friend gifted this as a farewell present. The smell and taste brought back some many fond memories of living in Japan. A true nostalgia experience! Would also love it in a loose leaf version!

Authentic flavour

I absolutely love this tea. I've had similar teas while travelling in Asia, so this tea brings back some lovely memories for me. A real taste of Asia.
Can you make it in loose leaf packs please? :)

The perfect green tea

An unusual green tea, I've never had one like it before or since and I've been buying this tea off and on for a treat for years. I recommend it to everyone - it's green tea with a hint of sweetness and a lovely after-taste of popcorn. This tea makes you feel warm and cosy and is the perfect treat at the end of the day.
