Genmaicha Green Tea

Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Mellow and soothing with the freshness of other Sencha green teas, Genmaicha green tea has been beloved by green tea drinkers in Japan for centuries, and its popularity is now spreading across the world. If you want to enjoy a reasonably priced Sencha green tea, then Genmaicha green tea is a great option.

Typically, Genmaicha green tea is created through mixing together brown puffed rice with Sencha tea leaves, either from the second harvest, Nibancha, or the third harvest, Sanbancha. Our Genmaicha green tea, however, comes from the first harvest of the year, Ichibancha. This provides our Genmaicha green tea with a wonderfully roasted blend that’s richer and more full bodied than typical Genmaicha green teas.

As with other Sencha teas, the leaves for Genmaicha green tea are grown in the fertile soils and sunlit plains of Kyoto. This city is the birthplace of Japanese tea culture, making our Genmaicha green tea as authentic as it comes and a great starting point for embarking on an exploration of the world of Japanese tea.

Being a green tea, Genmaicha offers many health benefits. In fact, studies have found that drinking green tea every day can help to lower cholesterol, relieve anxiety and stress and even assist with weight loss. So along with the delicious taste, you gain benefits for your mind, body and soul in every cup.

    Bought as a present for valentines day. Arrived right on time. Packaging is plain, brown box. Packed in tons of shreded paper. Tea itself is great! Samples looked as they do in picture. Aromatic and tasty.

    Excellent quality teas from WellTea! I am now regular customer! This is real Japanese Genmaicha. I am drinking green teas for about 12 year now and this is the best quality tea I came across in UK. Packaging also was excellent and I have received my parcel next day. Thank so much for professional service! Highly recommended!

    Bought as a present for someone who love Japanese tea. Was quite disappointed with packaging as it comes in a plain silver bag with a sticker. Thankfully tea itself tastes great and my cousin was very happy with it.

Matcha Premium Green Tea

The ancient city of Kyoto in Japan is where the country’s revered tea ceremony was born. It’s natural that the birthplace of Japanese tea culture is also the home of one of its most prized tea leaves – the Matcha tea leaf. This high grade tea leaf is grown and harvested exclusively in the Uji hills surrounding the proud city. Specifically, it is close to the river that the tea plants are grown. This is due to the higher fertility of the soil. Packed with nutrients and moisture flowing down from the hills, it’s believed that it’s this special soil that gives Matcha tea leaves their signature deep and mellow taste.

Kabusecha Sencha Green Tea

The harvesting process for Kabusecha Green tea is rather unique. Like all teas, the leaves are left to grow in natural sunlight. Then 2-3 weeks before they’re harvested the tea plants are covered with huge black sheets to block around half of the sunlight, hence the name Kabusecha which literally means ‘covered tea’. The reason for this is to bring out the tea’s highly sweet taste and remove any hint of bitterness. This has led to comparisons with Japanese Gyokuro tea, both in terms of taste and the emerald green colour of the leaves.

WellTea Kukicha Green Tea Quick View

Kukicha Green Tea

Kukicha tea is fondly nicknamed ‘twig tea’ for its distinctive appearance. Pronounced Ku-key-cha, this tea is made up of tea leaves mixed with young tea plant stems. So when buying a packet of Kukicha you will discover that it contains both medium-green and yellow pieces of tea plant. Kukicha green tea is a delightful Japanese tea for sharing a pot with friends or a relaxing cup on your own. Kukicha is regarded as one of the freshest tasting Japanese green teas, with a slightly bitter taste. When added to a teapot or cup with near boiling water, Kukicha then takes on a pale green-yellow colour and sweet scented fragrance. Another key characteristic of Kukicha green tea is that it is not roasted after it is harvested, but merely steamed. If you prefer roasted tea, WellTea supplies lots of roasted varieties of Japanese green tea, offering more woody tones of honey and grain.
