Origin of Genmaicha Tea
Genmaicha Tea originated in Kyoto, a town located in Japan, during the early 1900s. A local tea merchant wanted to find a way to sell expensive green tea at a cheaper rate, so he started to add brown rice to his green tea blend. Low-income families could now afford to buy tea while receiving the extra minerals and vitamins of the rice blend. The tea was named Genmaicha, which translates to brown rice tea.
Genmaicha Tea became very popular in Japan for poor people to drink because it consisted of roasted rice and nutritious green tea, which could feel as filling as some food products. Throughout the years, it became a worldwide trend. People love it for the nutty flavor it boasts, along with its numerous health benefits.
