A Japanese green tea blend of fine sencha and roasted brown rice
A true rags-to-riches story, this "people's tea" once relegated to the poor has climbed the ranks to become a delicacy on its own merits. Our blend of roasted sweet rice and fine sencha is a hearty, everyday favorite encapsulating genmaicha’s quintessential toasty essence.

It is my favorite green tea and the one I drink almost daily. A very placid and smooth tea, without complications. The flavor of the toasted rice does not overpower the sweet taste of the green sencha tea.
Pure roasted, slightly smoked, happiness in a tea cup.
It smells like popcorn happiness in a tea. Not at all bitter, very clear in profile, with a warmth from the rice. Careful though - it's easy to go overboard and overcaffeinate with this lovely one.
Grain of Truth is one of the first teas I bought from P&T. I'm a huge fan of Japanese green teas, and this one instantly became one of my favorites. It is full-flavored, and as described in the Tasting Notes, it has a balanced combination of popcorn and grass.
I've found this tea to be a perfect company for the work that requires creativity. The caffeine helps to keep focused, while its flavor feeds the imagination. A cup of Grain of Truth is my choice for research, pondering and writing.
Great quality. Light, not bitter. Not as full-bodied as I'm used to, but still lovely.
