A familiar Japanese Sencha mixed with puffed rice.
Genmaicha Otsuka combines Japan's most noted green tea, Sencha, with puffed rice, reducing the caffeine content by half. In Japan, this tea is drunk all day long. In The Netherlands, this tea is often drunk after dinner because of the low caffeine content.
This Genmaicha is produced by Otsuka, a prize-winning Japanese tea company.
The puffed rice imbues this tea with its typical Genmaicha flavor, giving it a sweet, fresh finish. This makes the tea a great companion to fish dishes, like sushi.
