Genmaicha is a traditional and popular Japanese green tea. It is also known as 'Brown Rice Tea', as it is a blend of steamed green tea and toasted rice.
A special varietal of rice known as 'Mochi-Gome' is used in making Genmaicha. Upon roasting, this varietal develops a deep golden color. It sometimes 'pops' into white kernels similar to popcorn.
Genmaicha is judged by the quality and grade of the green tea leaves (high grades are made with select Sencha leaf) and by the flavor and quality of the toasted rice (organic is preferred). Both must be blended in proportions that create a balanced flavor.
Earthy, nutty aroma with a smooth, mild savory taste.
Genmaicha pairs especially well with breakfast breads, rice desserts and fruit pastries.
Brew one level teaspoon of leaf in eight ounces pure, spring or filtered water at 180ºF for four minutes. Leaf can be reinfused two times.
