Genmaicha (gen-my-CHA) might just possibly be the best way to introduce novice taste buds to green tea, as the flavor of the toasted rice bolsters the richness of the premium sencha base. It's an earthy, Japanese sencha with toasted rice lending a delicate nuttiness. The sencha base used for this tea hails from the Miyazaki prefecture of the southern Japanese island of Kyushu.
Japanese Sencha Green Tea, Toasted Rice.
Simply add to your infuser one mounded teaspoonful of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 190° - 200° water and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and serve!
Our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy! The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
