This tea is a mixed bag (pun intended?). I’ve drank a lot of cups of this tea, and sometimes it tastes fantastic and fresh, and other times it’s weak and stale. I guess it depends on how long ago the store stocked it. I find that steeping it on the longer side (around 3 mins) tends to be a good idea.
Brown Rice Green Tea
Genmaicha is made from deeply steamed Sencha tea leaves with added Japanese brown rice and Matcha green tea powder. Together these flavours harmonise beautifully to create a delicious hot green tea with a hint of roasted rice. Like other teas it is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols. These help prevent cancer, keep the heart healthy and aid general well-being.
