Day 8: Genmaicha Green Tea
Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese green tea popularly known as “popcorn tea” from the grains of rice that pop during the roasting process. I’ve also seen Genmaicha used in some savory Japanese dishes so that may be another way to use this tea during a meal.
Flavor Highlights: Because of the bitterness, I would have this drink with lemon and accentuate the flavor.
This would be a definite go to when looking for an extra boost of energy. This was not a personal favorite because of the bitterness. But I do love sweet and sour which is why lemon and honey would go deliciously.
