In the Know

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 originated in Japan as a substitute tea for people who could not afford green tea. To save money and add flavor, the green tea leaves were mixed with roasted brown rice, making it more affordable. Though originally considered a poor man’s brew, the fact that this tea did not disappear as a popular green tea became a testament to its appeal, and today it is considered a Japanese tradition.

The rice in this blend gives the tea a mild, 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.

How to Properly Make the Perfect Cup of Genmaicha

As with all green teas, it is best to use water at a temperature not quite boiling. Suggested temp is 175° - 185° F. If you like a richer cup of this delightful blend, keep your tea ball in your cup. Finally, loose-leaf genmaicha can last through multiple steeps, always a tea plus.

Why choose Buddha Teas?

Buddha Teas searches the world for the very best herbs, flowers, spices, and teas to incorporate into our blended and single herb wellness products. We NEVER use additives or “natural” flavorings. Instead, we use substantial quantities of key ingredients to ensure our products have optimal efficacy. During our exploration for the best, we found that living in harmony with nature is ideal. We've realized that any time we need nature to provide for us, we must give something back. Sustainably harvesting and keeping waste and pollution at a bare minimum made sense to us. Buddha Teas is 100% chemical free, from our bleach free tea bags to our utilization of soy-based ink for our labels and beautifully colored tea boxes. When you buy Buddha Teas, you’re not only enjoying a flavorful, hand-crafted, all-natural tea but you will also feel peace of mind knowing that you are buying your tea from a company that gives back to our magnificent planet.

Bleach-Free Tea Bags

Our tea bags may not be the whitest, but they ARE the safest because Buddha Teas ONLY uses bleach-free teas bags. For us, this is not a preference but a necessity. Tea bags that have been bleached contain harmful chemicals such as dioxin and epichlorohydrin. Dioxin is a highly toxic, chemical compound produced by some chemical processes such as bleaching paper. It falls into the category of a POP (persistent organic pollutant) which, as the name suggests, persists and refuses to breakdown in our bodies and the environment, potentially taking decades to detox. Epichlorohydrin (bleach) is also toxic and listed as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP). It has been classified by the EPA as a human carcinogen.

Bleach Free Tea Bag

We believe that our customers should never have to choose between their health and their senses so we proudly offer bleach-free tea bags so that they can taste the purity of natural teas without the cost of harmful chemicals or additives.
