Genmaicha Yamasaki is a Japanese Sencha style tea, with fire roasted rice. It also goes by it’s pet name, “popcorn tea”.

Legend has it that in the 1400’s, a samurai warlord was being served tea by savant named Genamai. While serving him, she accidentally bumped him and knocked his rice snack into his tea. The rice popped when it hit the hot tea.

The warlord was so enraged that in a fit of rage, he beheaded Genamai on the spot. Turns out, that after the fact he took a sip of his “spoiled” tea and he really enjoyed his accidental beverage.

He named the new concoction Genmaicha Yamasaki, in Genamai’s honour.

  1. Dinah Richard

    Tastes like original green tea from Japan. Worth buying.

  2. Lauren Elcheson (verified owner)

    Fantastic green tea, on par with what I had in Tokyo. Holds up well to steeping a second time as well.

  3. Vicki Ma (verified owner)

    Quality ingredients. Nutty in flavour. Worth the purchase if you’re a green tea fan! Just remember not to oversteep as it will quickly turn more bitter (unless you prefer it that way of course!)

  4. Thaszky (verified owner)

    This tea is incredibly enjoyable. Tastes just like the one they serve at sushi restaurants which is what drew me to try it in the first place. Highly recommend.

    Another of my husband’s favourite green teas! He really enjoys the nutty flavour..
