Geisha Genmaicha is the Japanese name for green tea combined with roasted brown rice. During the roasting of the rice, it is not uncommon for the rice grains to ‘pop’ not unlike popcorn. Its wellbeing benefits include acting as an anti-oxidant as well as weight loss.
Yame is renowned across Japan for producing some of the finest high quality green tea in the whole country. Farmers work on small, remote plots of land high up in the mountains surrounding Yame. Kyushu’s largest plain receives 1,600 to 2,400 mm of rainfall per year, and temperatures are high during the day and drop drastically at night, which is important if you want to grow rich, sweet tea in large amounts. The temperature, shade and mist creates the perfect environment to nurture delicate teas. The ethereal mist and fog often found blanketing the fields in the morning don’t just add an air of mystery and beauty; they protect the leaves from the sunshine’s harshest rays.
Yame Region is proud of its top production amount of gyokuro green tea (Highest Quality). As much as 45% of all gyokuro available on Japanese market comes from Yame Region. Hence, Yame is renowned and known as one of the few production places of highest quality green tea in Japan. Roleaf Genmaicha is a mix of Yame green tea and high quality brown rice, which gives it a crispy taste.
