In the Know
For a tea with humble beginnings, genmaicha (which translates to “brown rice tea”) certainly isn’t humble in quality. Known colloquially as the “People’s Tea”, genmaicha originated in Japan as a substitute tea for people who could not afford green tea. To save money and add flavor, the green tea leaves were mixed with roasted brown rice, making it more affordable. Though originally considered a poor man’s brew, the fact that this tea did not disappear as a popular green tea became a testament to its appeal, and today it is considered a Japanese tradition.
The rice in this blend gives the tea a mild, roasted flavor, which can be an appealing change for those less interested in sweet or herbal teas. It is also often mixed with matcha to create matcha genmaicha, a blend even more potent and flavorful. For tea lovers, this is certainly one brew worth trying.
How to Properly Make the Perfect Cup of Genmaicha
As with all green teas, it is best to use water at a temperature not quite boiling. Suggested temp is 175° – 185° F. If you like a richer cup of this delightful blend, keep your tea bag in your cup.
