Genmaicha is the Japanese name for green tea combined with roasted brown rice. Tea steeped from these tea leaves has a light yellow hue. Its flavour is mild and combines the fresh grassy flavour of green tea with the aroma of the roasted rice. Although this tea is based on green tea, the recommended way to brew this tea is different from that of green tea. To make best aroma, it is recommended to use boiled water with brewing time of 30 seconds.
