Genmaicha is a rustic, simple tea that is very popular in Japan. It consists of Sencha, which is then flavoured with roasted rice (genmai). It is produced in most of the tea regions in Japan, and has an unmistakable roasted taste – one that you either like or dislike. Genmaicha may not offer the most delicate of tea experiences, but the fact is that it is well suited to strong, spicy dishes where a finer tea might not make its presence felt. It can also be used alongside various raw-fish dishes. Thanks to its low caffeine content, it is popular for drinking in the evening, e.g. at a late dinner. In Japan, many believe that it is good for the digestion, and is often served after a meal.
