The water used to steep this tea should be about 185-195°F or 85-90°C. Use about 2 teaspoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should uncurl for full flavor. The leaves may be steeped multiple times.
- Tea absorbs moisture and kitchen smells. To keep your tea fresh and avoid spoiling the flavour, keep loose tea or tea bags in a sealed jar or tin.
- Genmaicha (Brown Rice Tea) is the Japanese name for green tea combined with roasted brown rice. It is sometimes referred to colloquially as "popcorn tea" because a few grains of the rice pop during the roasting process and resemble popcorn. This type of tea was originally drunk by poor Japanese, as the rice served as a filler and reduced the price of the tea; which is why it is also known as the "people's tea." It was also used by those persons fasting for religious purposes or who found themselves to be between meals for long periods of time. The rice imparts its sugar and starches into the tea, creating a bright, smooth tea with warm, nutty flavors and satisfying full body. Eminently drinkable, relaxing, and soothing to the stomach, a wonderful drink morning or evening. Today it is consumed by all segments of society.
Tea steeped from Genmaicha has a light yellow hue. Its flavor is mild and combines the fresh grassy flavor 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.
Genmaicha is also sold with matcha (powdered green tea) added to it. This product is called Matcha-Iri Genmaicha ( Genmaicha with added powdered Matcha). Matcha-Iri Genmaicha has a similar flavor to plain Genmaicha but the flavor is often stronger and the color more green than light yellow.
