From Malt-Tea.com

Genmaicha, (“brown rice tea”) is the Japanese name for green tea combined with roasted brown rice. It is sometimes referred to colloquially as “popcorn tea” because a few grains of the rice pop during the roasting process and resemble popcorn. This type of tea was originally drunk by poor Japanese, as the rice served as a filler and reduced the price of the tea; which is why it is also known as the “people’s tea.”

Another one from my sampler pack! I let this cold brew probably for longer than I should, but it was so light in color after 12 hours that I just let it sit for about 6 more. Well, no harm done! It’s not too strong, but it’s also not as light as it was. It’s still pretty pale, but doesn’t lack flavor!

However, this is a lighter genmaicha than what I am used to. The green tea taste is stronger and grassy-sweet, with softer backing notes from the roasted rice. Given the strength of the other teas I’ve tried from Malt, I was kind of surprised! It’s not bad, in fact I like having a less toasty genmaicha option since the ones in my cupboard are either very toasty or mixed with matcha and not really an “everyday” drink.

While I am enjoying how refreshing this is, I wonder what a genmaicha-style blend with Malt’s roasted corn or crystal malt would be… I could imagine that being SO good! Toasty corn mixed with green tea, mmmm.
