Genmai Fasting Tea

Sale price $13.00 Regular price



Genmaicha ("brown rice tea") is a Japanese tea consisting of green tea combined with roasted popped brown rice. Genmaicha is referred to as the "people's tea" as it was widely available and has been enjoyed by hard-working Japanese for at least a few centuries. Although it is consumed today by all segments of society, this type of tea was originally drunk by everyday Japanese as the rice served as a filler and reduced the price of the tea. It is also used for fasting for religious purposes as it helps one's stomach feel better. The starch from the rice gives the tea a warm, full flavor that is similar to that of nuts.
