#702 This 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 became a smashing success. The brisk vegetal sweetness of sencha harmonizes wonderfully with the starchy flavor of toasted rice.
Preparation: 3 g tea leaves (1 heaping teaspoon) per 8 oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled to 90°C/194°F. Allow to brew 1 min.
