Genmaicha Loose Leaf Health Benefits
Genmaicha green tea may have humble origins, but its taste is far from modest. Genmaicha green tea is a Japanese tea blend of green tea leaves and roasted brown rice. Tradition holds that this tea was first invented by the poor and working class who could not afford much tea; they added brown rice as a filler and created this blend, earning it the name “Tea of the People”. The combination of sweet green tea and salty brown rice was so well-liked, however, that even as tea became more affordable, this inviting blend continued to remain. Today, it is a highly popular tea in Japan, and is gaining attention in tea shops around the world.
Why Choose Loose-Leaf Genmaicha?
A loose-leaf genmaicha green tea has several positive traits. First, loose-leaf allows you to examine the quality of the tea, with its fresh roasted smell, whole green leaves and toasty brown grains of rice. Loose-leaf tea also allows you to steep as much or as little as you like, letting you personalize your tea experience. Finally, a loose-leaf genmaicha can last through multiple steeps, giving you a longer, more satisfying tea time.
