Traditional Japanese green tea with toasted brown rice provides savory and full-bodied flavor. Pairs well with rice and vegetable stir-fry dishes.
Genmaicha was originally drunk by poor Japanese peasants. 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”
“Brown rice in Japanese is known as “genmai”, it contains a component called GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric acid) which plays a principal role in reducing cholesterol, fat prevention of obesity, diabetes and atherosclerosis. Another power of Genmaicha tea is “the effect of relaxation and stress relief.” This is one of the drinks, which certainly should be included in the daily diet of modern people suffering from a variety of emotional disorders affecting the psyche, central nervous system and insomnia. Genmaicha can also be used by people suffering from the effects of Constipation.
