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.
Taste Notes : Toasted Loveliness Green Tea
Brewing : Brewing the best cup. One teaspoon per cup. Boiling water is too fierce for green teas. 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, sweeten to taste, no milk.
Origin : Japan
Ingredients : Japan green tea, wholemeal puffed rice
Details : Genmaicha ("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.
Is it 1976 again? The subtle roast flavour takes me back to my immersion in Macrobiotics and Japanese cooking forty-seven years ago. Thank you Tug Boat for stocking it, and also for the complimentary Jasmine Tea packet - an unexpected bonus :-))
Simply great! Exactly what I was looking for!
I am very grateful to be able to find this wonderful tasting, very good quality Genmai-cha in Cornwall - great to be able to buy locally at Tugboat Truro.
The Genmaicha I purchased tastes really nice. The mix of toasted brown rice and green tea leaves is just right. Tugboat were quick to send it me, and I am very pleased with how easy it was to buy it online.
Out of the ordinary
A nice balance between the green tea and roasted rice components. A bit savoury in character. Good value.
