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.
A couple of days ago we talked about our love affair with brunches. We even shared a recipe that was perfect for a brisk morning, Rose Black Bubble Tea. Today, we want to share your next brunch binge: Honey Buttered Biscuits. The perfect pastry to pair with our Teasia Genmaicha Green Tea. The nutty taste and aroma of our Tea paired with the flaky buttery honey drizzled biscuits is enough to make anyone’s Sunday morning dreams come true. In a perfect world I would tear apart each layer and use them as blankets of buttery bliss, but since that utopia doesn’t exist yet, I’ll settle for breakfast.
What You’ll Need:
3 Cups all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 Cup milk
1 Teaspoon salt
¼ Cup honey
1 ½ sticks of cold unsalted butter
1 Teasia Genmaicha Green Tea K-Cup (Per person)

- Flour your work surface and roll dough out into a large rectangle.

This series has 3 caffeinated teas and 1 caffeine-free tea:
Genmaicha Green Tea
Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese green tea that is also known as “popcorn tea” due to the grains of rice that pop during the roasting process. The roasted rice lends to a rich and nutty aroma that blends perfectly with the fresh flavor of green tea.
Earl Grey Tea
Earl Grey Tea is a timeless classic that first became popular in England. Black tea is flavored with oil of bergamot, adding a sweet and light citrus aroma. The pleasant and fresh finish after each sip makes Earl Grey a perfect afternoon tea.
English Breakfast Tea
English Breakfast Tea is one of the world’s most popular black tea blends recognized by its robust and full-bodied flavor originating from Assam, Ceylon, and Kenya. We added a twist to this classic by adding Taiwan Black Tea leaves to the traditional blend. Enjoy with a splash of milk for a creamier texture.
Honeybush Tea (Caffeine-Free)
Honeybush Tea is cultivated during the flowering period of the honeybush plant, which is only grown in small areas of South Africa. This naturally caffeine-free tea has a distinctive honey taste and is commonly enjoyed with milk and sugar or on ice!
