Not one we’ve made up, we promise! Back in the day, green tea was rather expensive and too pricey for your average Japanese peasant, so to make it go further they’d mix it with grains of toasted rice. From such humble beginnings has grown a tea that, in today’s Japan, is celebrated in its own right as Genmaicha tea – or, to its friends, Popcorn tea. The British equivalent would probably be something like bubble and squeak, although obviously not recommended for use in teapots.
— Louise, Tea Taster at Teapigs

how does it taste?

Green tea with a popcorny, almost nutty undertone. “Sugar Puffs in a cup” – truly unique.

good if you're feeling

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.

how we like it

Straight - this interesting flavour is great on its own.

Iced

Just cover one tea temple with boiling water and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water. 

brew time

  • 1 tea temple per person. Brew for 3 mins, best with water at 80 degrees C. (If you don't have a fancy kettle or thermometer to hand, grabbing the kettle just before it boils will do the trick!)

Whole leaves take longer to brew, but the little wait is definitely worth it
