Gen Mai Cha Tea

Japanese green tea with toasted rice

    • TOASTED LOVELINESS

      Japanese green tea with toasted rice. Sounds odd, works well. A traditional Japanese recipe combining toasted and partially puffed rice grains with green tea leaves, to produce a tea with a distinctive, sweet and nutty taste.

      BREW

      Brewing the best cup. Use just one teaspoon per cup. Boiling water is a little fierce for green tea so, for just-off the boil water, simply boil the kettle, let it sit for three to four minutes, then brew your tea, 2+ mins, a little honey or sugar, no milk.

      Reasons to drink loose leaf green tea

    • Genmaicha (玄米茶?, "brown rice tea") is the Japanese name for green tea combined with roasted brown rice. Japan, a country with an ancient tea tradition, only produces green tea, much of which is consumed internally. Japanese green tea boasts a distinctive fresh, green character and appearance. Japanese Green tea is processed differently than the Chinese green teas -- after plucked, it is steamed to neutralize oxidation versus pan-fired.

A nice roasted rice flavour, and the green tea is not too bitter.
