Genmaicha tea is a combination of Japanese green tea and brown rice. Brown rice was originally added to tea as a filler for the poorer members of society, but has become a popular tea in its own right due to the mild flavour combination of light, grassy green tea and roasted brown rice. Low in caffeine and high in flavonoids, genmaicha is a healthier alternative to coffee and other teas.
