Japanese Genmaicha is blended with toasted rice kernels, so you get all the grassy sweetness of green Sencha, plus the nutty, popcorn-esque cosiness of brown rice. Some green teas can be bitter and sharp, but Genmaicha tea is mellow and warm, stacked with healing antioxidants like carotenoids and ascorbic acid. Drunk regularly, it can help drain toxins, boost the immune system, lower blood pressure and help prevent some cancers (thanks to natural catechins). It’s as close as tea gets to a big bowl of chicken soup. Easy on the tummy, soothing on the soul.
Ingredients: Certified organic green Sencha tea, roasted brown rice
Serving suggestion: Sift 1-2 teaspoons and brew in 80-85ºC water for 2-4 minutes until the brew turns sunshine yellow. Strain and serve.
