This organic Genmaicha Extra Green is an innovative blend of organic Genmaicha (pronounced GEN-my-cha) green tea and organic Matcha (pronounced MA-cha) green tea. Called the best Japanese organic green tea invention of the 20th century, this exceptional combination of Genmaicha's toasted aroma and Matcha's rich green character brings forth a pleasing and harmonious flavor that is bolder, sweeter and slightly more bitter than our traditional Genmaicha.

Steeping Instructions genmaicha-extra-green-tea-steeping-instructions.jpg At Arbor Teas, we believe tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. We’re happy to make recommendations to get you started, but don’t hesitate to experiment! When brewing your tea, your main considerations are tea quantity, water temperature, and steeping time. We recommend green and white teas to be steeped for 2 to 3 minutes in water heated to not-quite-boiling, just as bubbles begin to form on the bottom of the pan (approximately 170 to 180 degrees F). For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible. Try not to steep your tea longer than necessary, as you’ll extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves. If you want a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!
