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.
Day 2: Green Tea
I try to have at least one cup of green tea every day and I prefer this while working or enjoying a good book. What I enjoy most is the earthy blend of this Teasia tea. This blend is more flavorful than those I find in the grocery store. I like to use the K-cup twice before throwing it out, that’s how great of quality these are.
Flavor Highlights: Green tea is already a great go-to tea because of its’ health benefits and antioxidants, not to mention I definitely felt that caffeine boost after having a cup. This tea is enjoyable with honey and lemon.
The next tea that I’m trying is going to be Oolong Tea! I’m pretty excited about it so stay tuned.
