Genmai Cha

Genmai Cha


Genmai Cha is an exotic Japanese recipe that combines popped rice with tender and delicate green tea leaves. Unlike the affordable luxury it has become today, historically, tea was a pricey commodity. The Japanese peasants found it difficult to afford much tea, and would mix it with toasted rice, which was abundant and cheap. Thus, they were able to squeeze more cups from the same amount of leaves. A recipe born of poverty, Genmai Cha has acquired an uptown chic and is now a favorite of urban dwellers in Japan and the West.


Ingredients:  Japanese green tea, toasted rice
