Gen Mai Cha & Cacao Luxury Tea
£ 5.50 – £ 9.50
An interesting blend of exceptional quality, our Gen Mai Cha & Cacao Luxury Tea has a mild, grassy, nutty flavour to be savoured at any time of day.
Antioxidant-rich, this is the finest green tea blended with roasted & popped brown rice with real cacao. This gives a toasty, intense flavour & is less acidic than other teas. Simply sublime.
Genmaicha is a Japanese green tea with brown rice kernels. Once brewed, this tea has a light yellow hue and is quite mild to drink. The taste is nutty and has a subtle aroma of roasted rice, which helps balance the bitterness.
If drank often, green tea is believed to offer some health benefits:
- Antioxidants – green tea contains catechins, a type of natural phenol & antioxidant believed to help fight cancer-causing cells, plus an array of antioxidants such as caronteids & ascorbic acid. If drank on a regular basis, green tea can help to boost your immune system & also helps reduce toxins from your body.
- Lower blood pressure – green tea can alleviate hypertension, helping to lower your blood pressure.
- Heart health – drinking green tea on a regular basis can help to lower your risk of developing heart disease
- Relaxation – Gen Mai Cha has an active ingredient called theanine, which can offer a soothing feeling of relaxation.
Perfect on its own.
We recommend either brewing in a teapot or using a simple cup infuser for the best flavour & no teabag to go into landfill.

As a guide, our small tins are enough for between 15-20 cups; the larger tins are enough for around 30-40 cups depending on how strong you like it.
As soon as you open one of our tins, you’ll notice that we treat our blends with care. This means less dust & more whole leaves, creating even more flavour using less weight of tea than cheaper imitations. Compare our blends with the dust you often find in bags & inferior blends & you’ll immediately see why we are in a different class.
We source the finest teas, herbs, fruits & spices from around the world & carefully blend them to create unique flavour experiences. Our tea blends contain no extra packaging, no messy pouches, plastic wraps or bags for landfill; instead they are filled into easily-recyclable sealed tins to maintain freshness & keep away the damaging light.
We do things differently with our ingredients as well. We add NO sugar, emulsifiers, anti-caking agents, E-numbers, acidifiers or artificial flavourings to ANY of our teas or tisanes, whereas many inferior products will. When you look at the ingredients labels, we think the difference is clear. Our ethos has always been that we’d rather not create a particular blend if we can’t do it naturally.
All our blends are also available as Wedding Favours with personalised labels. Please contact us for more details & pricing.
