Gen Mai Cha Supreme is a classic Japanese tea, it is a wonderful blend of luxury Japanese green tea and toasted brown rice. High quality Gen Mai Cha is always made with toasted brown rice, which delivers a sweeter, richer flavor; cheaper varieties will be made with toasted white rice.

This aromatic blended tea brings together the refreshing lightness, sweetness and the distinctive taste of roasted rice. This tea has a mild taste of sweet, grassy green tea with wonderful roasted, toasty rice flavor; it has less caffeine and tastes less astringent than other Japanese teas.

This is one of the most popular teas served at Japanese restaurants, and drank daily in the homes of Japanese!

We hope you love our luxury Gen Mai Cha Supreme as much as we do!

I decided to test a bunch of tea from TeaLyra so I ordered a set and brewed them all the same. For our test, 1 full teaspoon of tea was used and all were steeped for 3 minutes in a 50mL teacup. To test how well the smell and taste held up, I also included a second brew during our test.

This genmaicha is weaker than my hamster. Both the rice and green tea are weak in scent and flavour. The rice is so weak that the green tea flavour actually managed to overpower the roasted rice. Never have I tasted genmaicha with a stronger green tea flavour than rice. I have had store-bought tea that brewed stronger. I also used to work in a Japanese ramen store and even our "low-grade" genmaicha was better than this. If you are a fan of strong teas especially if you have had very good genmaicha, then, skip this. I agree with a previous reviewer, I would not pay this price for such a weak tea.

I rated this tea 3/10

I drink Genmaicha every afternoon. It has enough caffeine to keep me going but not so much that I can't sleep at night. The toasted rice lend it a pleasant roasty flavor & smell. I've tried many brands and this is one of the best that I've found!

Delicious new morning ritual is making my Genmaicha tea, reminiscent of the puffed toasted rice cereal I used to eat as a little boy. Smooth, with a clean, grassy green tea flavor. Tases great with just a touch of stevia or xylitol. It’s so good, I don’t miss morning coffee anymore!
