Gen Mai Cha Green
A hearty tea, good with dinner too, this Genmaicha ("brown rice tea") Japanese Sencha Green tea is nicely blended with toasted rice. Some people call it the "popcorn tea" because some rice grains pop in the roasting process, which then resembles popcorn. It brews a mildly aromatic yellow liquor and has that nice grassy flavor of green tea. Genmaicha is known to enhance the flavor of fine foods and to cleanse the palate. Best served hot like a cup of hot soup. Don't miss this one as a pantry staple.
