Brown Rice Tea

Brown rice tea is very healthy and you can drink it all day long.



  1. Get some brown rice tea, often called Genmaicha, in Japanese.
  2. Boil 1.5 liters of fresh water in a pot or tea kettle. As soon as it is boiling turn it off and wait for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Genmaicha should be boiled at a temp of 175 °F to 185 °F (80 °C to 85 °C). If you don't have a thermometer to test the temp of the water, just shut off the heat as soon as the water has started boiling, and wait 5 minutes for the water to cool off a little.
  4. Measure 5 teaspoons of the Genmaicha into a 1.5 liter pan, and pour the hot water into the pot. Let the tea steep from 3-5 minutes but no more than 5 minutes or it will be too strong. I find that 3 minutes is perfect!
  5. Immediately strain your tea and water into another pot, or teapot, removing all tea from your water, and let it sit at room temperature for awhile; depending on your preferences, drink it hot, or allow it to cool.
