Genmaicha Rice

Labels: ,

I love Japanese green tea leaves with roasted rice, hot or cold. The tea is called genmaicha (pronounced with a hard g+enmycha). I recently flavored my kefir water with the tea together with grated apples and fresh mint leaves. It's the best refreshing healthy summer drink. 

Today for lunch I had hot genmaicha added to freshly steamed Japanese short-grain rice. The meal was washed down with the kefir drink. The more genmaicha, the better.
