Genmaicha (brown rice tea) is genmaichaessentially a mix of green tea and roasted rice.This blend balances the astringency of green tea with the nutty flavor of the roasted rice. 

The Japanese consider genmaicha as a type of Japanese green tea and not an ordinary blend, perhaps because they have been enjoying it for quite a long time. 

How is genmaicha made? 

Genmaicha is traditionally made with sencha. However, nowadays the market offers a lot of options, such as bancha genmaicha ( made with bancha), houji genmaicha ( made with houjicha) and gyokuro genmaicha ( made with gyokuro). Sometimes matcha is also added to genmaicha, and its called matchairigenmaicha. Genmaicha with added matcha is easy to recognize because the roasted rice looks green!
