A traditional Japanese speciality made up of tea leaves mixed with roasted rice (genmai) and fresh matcha powder. A dark green infusion in the cup, it has a pleasantly roasted flavour. Genmaicha was originally meant to combine the pleasing aromas of green tea and roasted rice. Medium quality green tea is mixed with roasted rice, and as it contains less caffeine more can be drunk. By drinking Genmaicha tea, we consume a substance contained in brown rice called GABA: gamma-aminobutyric acid, which relieves stress.
