The legend of Genmaicha is that it was discovered by Buddhist monks that had mixed leftover browned rice from their iron pot with their tea in an effort to prevent waste. There's another story of a Samurai dropping part of his morning snack into a general's tea, and being severly punished (i.e. beheaded) for ruining the tea. We love this tea for it's deliciously smooth Sencha (higher grade tea) blended in with a nutty and almost chewy toasted rice that perfectly complement each other. This tea is wonderful in the morning for a savory sip, or throughout the day.
How to Prepare:
Mug (8oz water):1.5 level tsp • 185º • Steep for 3 min.
Teapot: (8oz water): 2 level tsp • 180º • Steep for 2 min.
Resteep: 1 time for 3 min.
Covered teapots retain more heat, therefore the Teapot method requires less time for steeping.
Add more tea to your taste to make the tea richer or stronger, rather than leaving the tea to steep longer than directed.
