Genmaicha Green Tea Health Benefits
For a tea with humble beginnings, genmaicha (which translates to “brown rice tea”) certainly isn’t humble in quality. Known colloquially as the “People’s Tea”, genmaicha first came into existence in Japan as a substitute tea for people who could not normally afford green tea. To save money and add flavor, the green tea leaves were brewed with roasted brown rice, which was more affordable. Though originally considered a poor man’s brew, the fact that this tea did not disappear as standard green tea became more affordable is a testament to its appeal, and today it is considered a Japanese tradition. The rice in this blend gives the tea a strong, roasted flavor, which can be an appealing change for those less interested in sweet or herbal teas. It is also often mixed with matcha to create matcha genmaicha, a blend even more potent and flavorful. For tea lovers, this is certainly one brew worth trying.
Enjoy Genmaicha's Best Qualities
Every time you enjoy a satisfying sip of genmaicha, you provide your body with all of the positive qualities green tea has to offer. With a boost in B vitamins and minerals like manganese, calcium, iron and potassium, genmaicha green tea is a great way to increase your daily nutrition. It is also a natural source of antioxidants, and its light caffeine levels make this tea stimulating without being overwhelming.
