Classic Green Tea
No inferior tea here—our Genmaicha is made with high quality Sencha, and of course, the famous toasted rice. Originally a frugal and clever way to extend the household tea supply until the following spring, this invention of the proletariate became a smashing success. The brisk vegetal sweetness of Sencha harmonizes wonderfully with the starchy flavor of toasted rice.
Preparation: 3g tea leaves (1 heaping teaspoon) per 8oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled to 90°C/194°F. Allow to brew 1 min.
