Genmaicha

If you're feeling a bit stressed then you'll be most interested in my "teas-day" subject - Genmaicha

Genmaicha is a blend of green tea and toasted brown rice and the first thing you'll notice is the lovely sweet, nutty aroma from the toasted rice.

It's important when brewing this tea that you don't use boiling water - boiling water will make the tea bitter - try for a temperature of 80°C and infuse only for a minute or two. It is low in caffeine so it's a great tea for any part of the day or night.

  2. I have never tried Genmaicha and I've never heard of toasted rice in tea. It sounds like a very interesting flavor. I should try this sometime.
